The Forgiven


David and Jo (Ralph Fiennes and Jessica Chastain), visit Morocco to attend a weekend party at a friend’s desert villa. On their way, a drunken David accidentally hits and kills a young boy. The boy’s father, a Berber tribal leader, makes only one request – David must come with him to the desert to bury his son amongst his people. John Michael McDonagh is the writer/director. ®

 "A searingly brutal critique of modern colonialism." JoBlo's Movie Network

"What makes this movie so great is the satirical nature of it all and the emotion it draws from the audience. It makes for an excellent conversation piece" Catalina Combs, Black Girl Nerds
