Sandra Bullock stars as Ruth Slater, a woman released from prison after serving 20 years for murdering sheriff Mac Wheelan (W. Earl Brown).
He came to her home to evict her and her five-year-old sister, whom Ruth was raising and after serving her sentence, Ruth decides to try and track down her younger sister, Katie (played by Aisling Franciosi).
Katie is now living with a foster family and she barely remembers Ruth, but experiences memories of trauma, and her foster family decided to keep her past hidden from her.
While Ruth tries to track down her long lost sister, Keith Whelan (played by Tom Guiry), the eldest son of the murdered sheriff begins stalking Ruth after discovering she’s been released from prison.
Ruth gets the help of lawyer John Ingram (Vincent D’Onofrio), who now lives in her old house with wife Liz (Viola Davis) to help track down her sister.
One viewer revealed: "The Unforgivable on Netflix had me crying my eyes out!!"
And a second viewer tweeted: "The Unforgivable really had me ugly crying. Sandra Bullock don’t miss."
While a third Twitter user shared: "I saw this The Unforgivable movie on Netflix and I’m crying, dawg."
And a fourth person wrote: "Idk what was wrong with me last night but I watched The Unforgivable movie and ugly cried several times. Then rewinded the end just to cry again."
The plot may sound familiar because it’s based on the 2009 ITV mini-series Unforgiven, which starred Suranne Jones and Will Mellor.
The Netflix movie dropped on Netflix on 10th December and the tale of the separated sisters has left Netflix viewers in tears ever since.
