Netflix drama directed by Nora Fingscheidt. The Unforgivable (2021) follows Ruth Slater (Sandra Bullock), who after being released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Ruth Slater: [over phone] Hello? Hello?
Keith Whelan: You’re going to pay for what you did.
Ruth Slater: I was in prison. I just got out. I was there for twenty years.
Brad: For what? Was it an accident?
[Ruth shakes her head]
Man: [moviequotesandmore.com] Does your release alter the terms of your “no contact order”?
Ruth Slater: You don’t have to give me a speech. I’m looking for Katie. She’s my little sister. I raised her. And next time, don’t drag me through three bus transfers to tell me something I already know.
John’s Wife: John? There’s a John’s Wife in the front yard.
John: [to Ruth] Can I help you with something?

Ruth Slater: I got to be a convict wherever I go?
Man: No, you’re a cop killer everywhere you go.
