"McDonagh loves his monsters, and in casting someone as adept at conveying the nuances of the character's transformation as Fiennes, he shows that he understands the core tragedy of The Forgiven."—Peter Debruge, Variety

"Has the feeling of a strong literary novel; the type you pore over after pouring yourself a glass of scotch rather than the type of mindless potboiler you read on the beach."—Chris Evangelista, SlashFilm

"Scripted, directed and acted with intelligence and panache, it's a very grown-up film but never a bore, a morally alert drama that leaves the scolding to us."—John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

Speeding through the Moroccan desert to attend an old friend's lavish weekend party, wealthy Londoners David and Jo Henninger (Ralph Fiennes and Jessica Chastain) are involved in a tragic accident with a local teenage boy. Arriving late at the grand villa with the debauched party raging, the couple attempts to cover up the incident with the collusion of the local police. But when the boy's father arrives seeking justice, the stage is set for a tension-filled culture clash in which David and Jo must come to terms with their fateful act and its shattering consequences.
