Why watch this film?

If you like intense and thought-provoking drama films, 'The Forgiven' is for you. Directed by John Michael McDonagh and starring Ralph Fiennes ('The Menu') and Jessica Chastain ('The Eyes of Tammy Faye'), the movie is about two British tourists whose lives are turned upside down when they get involved in an accident with a boy in the Moroccan desert and try to cover it up. As they are forced to confront their actions and beliefs, a settling of accounts becomes inevitable. Although the script sometimes pays more attention to the excesses of privilege than to criticize them, 'The Forgiven' has excellent performances (mainly from Fiennes), so it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end.
