In this riveting and extremely intense new trailer, we get to watch with admiration as shows off his acting mettle by giving a terrifying depiction of a profoundly psychologically troubled man in his upcoming movie Repentance. Directed by French-Lebanese filmmaker , this thriller deals with themes such as karma, retribution, and ultimately, as the title unsubtly points out, repentance.

Here's the official synopsis released by the CodeBlack films:

Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Thomas Carter (Anthony Mackie) has reinvented himself as a therapist/spiritual adviser who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity. He's parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the “untimely” death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Mike Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. What may be simple to grasp for some is the idea that single actions in the past comprise tidal waves of reactions in the present

Repentance stars, alongside Whitaker, , , Denise Milfort, Adella Gautier, , , Ariana Neal and Robert Segari.

Now watch Forest lose the grip on his mind in this two-and-a-half-minute (I know, a rare treat) trailer:


Repentance premieres on February 28th, 2014 in a limited release.
