Movie Info

With all the picturesque glamour of the 1940s, The Pardon captures the spirit of the universal need to be loved and forgiven, yet with a surprising twist. Recounting the unlikely but true story of Toni Jo Henry (Jaime King), a woman tried for murder in 1942 Louisiana, this compelling drama unveils the profound inner struggle of a tormented soul as she pleads her innocence to a skeptical jury.

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

A plodding feature that makes ample use of the legal record as well as evocative Shreveport locations while leaving the well of affecting drama untapped.

Top Critic

Jaime King lights up the screen as an empathetic femme fatale in a compelling costume drama painstakingly-recreating events surrounding a real-life murder trial unfolding in Louisiana back in 1940.

Baret News

Part period drama, part courtroom drama and part sermon, it's a film that never gives itself much of a chance to hit its narrative stride.
