Critic Reviews of "The Forgiven"Christian Science MonitorMarch 09, 2018
No attempt is made to win over the audience. This welcome absence of sentimentality allows us to experience Tutu's own crisis of faith as he attempts to reconcile this man's actions with his bedrock belief in forgiveness.RogerEbert.comMarch 09, 2018
[The Forgiven] only succeeds as an ugly, empty-headed provocation.Los Angeles TimesMarch 08, 2018
Several powerful narratives vie for supremacy in the political drama "The Forgiven," but this sluggishly paced film's disparate parts never come together as a compelling whole.New York TimesMarch 08, 2018
"The Forgiven" is heavy-handed from its early texts explaining apartheid through its end credits.VarietyMarch 08, 2018
At least gives the Commission's heroic chairman, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, his due by placing him front and center in its history - though it's debatable whether Forest Whitaker's glazed impersonation should be considered an honour.Hollywood ReporterMarch 07, 2018
The Forgiven tackles its important political and social issues in an overly talky fashion. The film has its merits, but it represents a significant comedown for the director of such classics as The Mission and The Killing Fields.Mark Leeper's ReviewsMarch 19, 2018
The film gives the viewer ample reason to make Tutu a saint, but little reason to make him a dramatic screen hero.Spirituality and PracticeMarch 16, 2018
A drama about the restorative justice and forgiveness work of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.Film InquiryMarch 16, 2018
The Forgiven is a timely and powerful film, and the ultimate testament to the power of forgiveness and finding common ground in our humanity.Film ThreatMarch 15, 2018
Just alone, the scenes between Bana and Whitaker earn the film a recommendation, but other than that there's just not much else worthy of note.Black Girl NerdsMarch 15, 2018
The Forgiven plunges us into the heart of post-apartheid chaos, where we see and feel the hurt, fear, and rage that had to be aired before the healing could begin.AARP Movies for GrownupsMarch 15, 2018
The core debate and both main performances are compelling.
