Following the success of Bird Box, Sandra Bullockis back with what’s sure to be another Netflix blockbuster. The Unforgivable had a long journey to American screens: The film was first developed in 2010 with Angelina Jolie in mind for the leading role of Ruth.
It took nearly a decade, however, to get it off the ground, and in 2019, Bullock attached herself to star alongside Viola Davis.
Filming started in February 2020, but was then further delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bullock, who’s also a producer on the project, told Entertainment Weekly that The Unforgivable is both a drama and a mystery.
My character is someone who has been incarcerated for 20 years for a pretty heinous crime [and] gets out. 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.
“Finding out the background to the story of why she did what she did is sort of the whodunnit of this. It’s a murder mystery within a very complex character drama.
Now for the trailer.
