Storyline

On the eve of his campaign launch for a seat in the US Senate, Peter Miles, a small town District Attorney, receives word that the governor has exonerated Ronald Bradler, a death row inmate whom Peter prosecuted five years earlier for the murder of a local police officer. In the wake of Bradler's release and through the prism of the media frenzy surrounding the high profile case, what unfolds is a public vetting of Peter's record. When hard evidence of actual impropriety on Peter's part finds it way into his possession, Bradler seeks out Peter for answers. Written by Anonymous

Too controversial to succeed, but very much worth watching
29 January 2006 | by (Palo Alto, CA) – See all my reviews

Most films about capital punishment and the American justice system, these days, choose sides. "Forgiven" refuses to do so, and therein lies the rub: this plot should appeal to liberals and conservatives alike, yet also potentially offend them both beyond repair by the end of the fifth act.

I'm not at all surprised that its average rating is this low. There is no "target audience" for this film. Something absolutely terrible happens, and a few members of the Sundance audience with which I watched it could not deal with it, and I can't say I blame them. It's a very hard film to watch, but I think it's important and thought-provoking no matter where one stands politically.
