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.

Critic Reviews for The Pardon

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.

August 6, 2015 | Full Review…

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.

August 14, 2015 | Rating: 3/4

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.
