The film has often been praised for its stark realism. Is this sentence in the active or passive voice?
It is passive. "has been praised"
Thank you for your response. However, Grammarly classifies the sentence as active. I thought is may have something to do with the fact that the film itself has stark realism - the fact it's praised is just modifying the clause "The film has stark realism". Any further thoughts?
