“Miss Congeniality” star Sandra Bullock is anything but in the trailer for new prison-release drama “The Unforgivable.”

The Oscar-winning actress stars as Ruth Slater, a newly released ex-convict hoping to reconnect with the little sister she abandoned after being sent away to the slammer for a violent, vaguely-hinted at crime. “I wonder all the time what she looks like, what she became,” Bullock’s character laments (above).

Ruth is a little rough around the edges after spending so much time behind bars and struggles to reintegrate with society. Worse yet, while the state may be satisfied with time served, her family and friends seem far less quick to forgive.

Directed by Nora Fingscheidt and written by Peter Craig, Hillary Seitz, and Courtenay Miles, “The Unforgivable” is based off a similarly titled British miniseries from 2009. The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Viola Davis, Richard Thomas, Linda Emond, Aisling Franciosi, Rob Morgan, and Stern Show veteran Jon Bernthal.

“The Unforgivable” opens Nov. 24 in select theaters and arrives Dec. 10 on Netflix.
