NEON Sets Clemency Release Date for December

-

NEON announced today it has set the Clemency release date for December 27, 2019. The Chinonye Chukwu film won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize.

The film stars Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard and has garnered rave reviews, receiving tremendous praise for Woodard’s performance. Clemency, which critics lauded as “powerful” and “profound”, is already garnering early Oscar buzz for Alfre Woodard and Aldis Hodge’s emotional performances.

Years of carrying out death row executions have taken a toll on prison warden Bernadine Williams. 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.

Clemency also stars Aldis Hodge (Hidden Figures), Richard Schiff (Man of Steel, The West Wing) and Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Selma).

The film was produced by ACE Pictures Entertainment, Bronwyn Cornelius Productions and Julian Cautherley.

NEON recently garnered an Academy Award nomination for Border. Its upcoming slate also includes: Tom Harper’s Wild Rose starring Jessie Buckley; and Bong Joon-Ho’s highly-anticipated drama Parasite, which will be In Competition at Cannes. NEON was also behind Craig Gillespie’s runaway hit I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie and the Academy Award winner for best supporting actress, Allison Janney, as well as Matt Spicer’s Sundance and Independent Spirit Award-winner Ingrid Goes West.
