In any normal year, awards media would be filled with acclaim for Alfre Woodard’s scintillating performance in Chinonye Chukwu’s brilliant drama. But this is obviously not a normal year.
Having been included in our Phoenix at Home recommendations over the summer, we wanted to give Clemency the big screen attention it rightly deserves.
Woodard plays prison warden Bernadine Williams, haunted by her work on death row and struggling with its effect on her marriage.
