Clemency is a thoroughly draining experience as if we're placed in purgatory with no means of escape, but it's ultimately powerful in the ways it shows how the death penalty has consequences for everyone involved.
Sensitive and hard-hitting, writer-director Chinonye Chukwu's debut feature "Clemency" is a thoughtful examination of the death penalty in American prisons - seen from the viewpoint of the people who carry it out.
CLEMENCY conjures a lot of feelings: Rage and empathy because of its precise and scorching indictment of capital punishment; marvel at Alfre Woodard's fantastic lead performance and her many spot on close ups.
