"Chukwu maintains an impressive command over her material, but Woodard herself becomes the movie’s central storyteller."
Eric Kohn - INDIEWIRE

"It's the humanity and compassion invested across all the principal characters that makes this contemplative examination of the terrible weight of taking a life so commanding."
David Rooney - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"There’s little room to breathe in writer-director Chinonye Chukwu’s constricting, devastating drama CLEMENCY, an intentionally airless film processing a tough subject through an unusual viewpoint."
Benjamin Lee - THE GUARDIAN
