News About "Acrimony"

On March 30, 2018, Acrimony opens wide in US theaters, but only in a limited release in Canadian theaters.

If you, like me, were unfamiliar with the word acrimony, the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as: anger and bitterness, harsh or biting sharpness especially of words, manner, or feelings.

It is understandable why a woman who feels betrayed may also be having feelings of acrimony. But sympathy wains when that anger turns into vengeful actions.

Taraji P. Henson stars as Melinda, the woman scorned. Lyric Bent plays the unfaithful husband who is about to feel the full force of her fury. Rated R by the MPPA, Acrimony follows the violence that erupts as Melinda's mental instability increases. The film contains sexual depictions and coarse language as well.
