Years of carrying out death row executions have taken a toll on prison warden Bernadine Williams. As she prepares to execute another inmate, Bernadine must confront the psychological and emotional demons her job creates, ultimately connecting her to the man she is sanctioned to kill.
A film of self doubt and emotional regret and painful psych wounds!
"Clemency" is one roller coaster of a ride film that challenges your take and feelings on our current state of justice, that being the hot button topic of capital punishment. And this is a showcase showing how one prison warden named Bernadine Williams(in a strong turn from Alfre Woodard) deals with the emotional and mental toll that doing executions at her prison takes on her. Thru it all after each death of an inmate by lethal injection and with the media and society always on the watch Bernadine starts to experience emotional drama and even have self doubt as her job is really starting to affect her. As being strong and by the book is starting to give her self doubt and her mind takes on a guilt like complex. Overall okay film that give rise and awareness to a social justice issue as it shows it's impact and emotional toll on people and society.
