Sandra Bullock Seeks Redemption In First Look At Netflix’s ‘The Unforgivable’

In her latest film for Netflix, Sandra Bullock isn’t keeping blindfolded as she did in Bird Box. Her character in The Unforgivable is actually looking for something: redemption.

The first image from The Unforgivable has debuted, featuring Bullock as a woman released from prison after serving time for a violent crime. But her return to society is met by people whose lives her crime impacted, and they aren’t so welcoming. A stacked cast joins Bullock including Vincent D’Onofrio, Jon Bernthal, Richard Thomas, Linda Emond, Aisling Franciosi, Rob Morgan, Emma Nelson, Will Pullen, Thomas Guiry and Viola Davis.

“My character is someone who has been incarcerated for 20 years for a pretty heinous crime [and] gets out,” Bullock told EW. “There are several people whose lives she affected by this crime she committed, and there’s a lot of hatred and anger and bitterness and sorrow associated with her release. She wants to find this one person, the only family she had when she went in, and you keep asking yourself, ‘Why can’t you let it go? This family member was traumatized by your actions — let it go! Stop harming these people all over again.'”

Behind the camera is German filmmaker Nora Fingscheidt, known for her acclaimed 2019 film System Crasher. The film was co-written by Peter Craig (The Batman) and Hillary Seitz and Courtenay Miles.

The Unforgivable hits Netflix on December 10th, preceded by a select theatrical run on November 24th.
