Winner of the 2020 Sundance Grand Jury Prize. Years of carrying out death row executions have taken a toll on prison warden Bernadine Williams (Alfre Woodard). 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. ★★★★★ "It’s a towering performance from Woodard, her career masterpiece, and she is first among equals in an outstanding cast" - Peter Bradshaw's Film Of The Week, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Woodard’s, obviously, is the talking-point performance, a ridiculously nuanced turn that will keep drama students occupied for years... However, this is the novice writer-director Chinonye Chukwu’s show" - Kevin Maher, The Times ★★★★ "In 2019, Chukwu became the first black woman to win the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize. It’s long overdue, but well-deserved – her work is a deeply moving piece of social art" - Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
