Opening at The Ross on Friday, February 14, CLEMENCY mines serious social issues for gripping drama, brought to life by an outstanding cast led by Alfre Woodard. CLEMENCY does what few other movies about death row have, handling a thorny, infinitely complicated subject in terms that are neither moralizing nor melodramatic. –Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly With a devastating performance as a prison warden who oversees executions, the actress brings the toll of the death penalty to wrenching life. Like the movie she inhabits with every fiber of her being, Woodard is some kind of miracle. –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone A brutal and beautiful meditation on the reality of death and the barbarism of state-sponsored execution. –Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service CLEMENCY is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, February 14 through Thursday, February 27. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated CLEMENCY R (for some disturbing material, and language). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. 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.
