Director Joshua Marston broke through with his 2004 critical hit “Maria Full of Grace.” Now he returns with yet another tragic look at an underdog character with “The Forgiveness of Blood.” The film follows a family in Albania and their culture’s little-known tradition of “blood feuds.” After a conflict with a neighbor leads to murder, one young teenager from the accused’s family is forced into isolation to avoid being killed to maintain the balance. Meanwhile, his young sister is forced to work to keep the family afloat.
