Alfre Woodard‘s illustrious career adds an incredible new chapter named ‘Clemency.’
Directed by Chinonye Chukwu, the harrowing prison drama won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and deservingly so.
The film sees Woodard deliver a masterful performance as death row Warden Bernadine Williams.
Throughout its course, ‘Clemency’ hones in on the tall toll executions and their preceding moments take on Williams.
Central to the story is her interaction with a particular prisoner (played by Aldis Hodge), who maintains his innocence.
Ahead of the film’s UK release on July 17th, That Grape Juice‘s Samuel Eni caught up with the revered actress, who opened up about the role, the move towards equality in Black in Hollywood, advice for young creatives, and much more.
