There is something delightfully satisfying about seeing America's sweetheart channel her rebellious side.
No, this is not a reference to Julia Roberts or Meg Ryan. It's a nod to the rom-com queen Sandra Bullock, who everyone knows as the lovable, quirky protagonist in films like While You Were Sleeping, All About Steve and Miss Congeniality. The actress has also flexed her acting muscles across multiple genres, from sports dramas to sci-fi thrillers (how amazing was Gravity?!). But now, the Oscar winner is making headlines with her new Netflix thriller, The Unforgivable, and it's...well, a mixed bag.
On the plus side, it boasts a solid cast (from Viola Davis to Jon Bernthal) and it touches on plenty of key issues that relate to the justice system, but unfortunately, it sells itself short with a shocking twist that actually takes away from the entire film.
