A death row prison warden (Alfre Woodard) grapples with the psychological fallout of her job following years of executions, in Chinonye Chukwu's Sundance Grand Jury Prize–winning drama.
Acclaimed as a "brilliant" and "heartbreaking" performance, Alfre Woodard's work in Clemency was a key part of why the film won a Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Under the skilled guidance of writer-director Chinonye Chukwu, Woodard provides a layered, nuanced portrait of a beleaguered prison warden that is best seen on the big screen.
