In Ray McKinnon's extraordinary drama Rectify, Daniel Holden (Aden Young) is released from prison after nearly 20 years, thanks to new DNA evidence that points towards him not being the one who killed his then 15-year-old girlfriend. Daniel leaves death row to return to his family, who still live in the sleepy Georgia town of Paulie, where the murder took place. Rectify becomes a somber meditation on crime and punishment but also a beatific appreciation of the beauty of the natural world around us. Small details — a sunrise, a grove of trees, the weight of feathers falling on your face — become exuberant rediscoveries of what it means to be human. But even as Daniel tries to readjust to life outside of prison, there are dark forces that would like to see him punished for the crime, even as the true perpetrators remain at large. Stunning performances from Young, Abigail Spencer, Clayne Crawford, Adelaide Clemens, Luke Kirby, and J. Smith-Cameron push Rectify deeper into hallowed grounds. This is what the serialized drama form was made for; Rectify captures the joy and dread of life, the subtle passage of time, the pain and agony of humility, shame, and desire, and the endurance of the human spirit. This is one show to celebrate over and over again.
