New Digital Restoration
A tense, hard-edged, superbly dramatic yarn that is also an exceedingly intelligent meditation on the West, its myths and its heroes.Todd McCarthy, Variety

Timed with the twenty-fifth anniversary of the film’s release, this new digital restoration represents one of Clint Eastwood’s major works as a director and among his richest performances as an actor. Eastwood plays William Munny, a retired, reformed gunman in 1880s Wyoming who agrees to get back in the saddle one last time. Both behind and in front of the camera, he brings a new emotional and moral depth to the genre that made him a star. The West of Unforgiven, like Eastwood’s deeply furrowed face, is a landscape shaped equally by beauty and brutality.
