Violet (2021)



Critic Consensus: Uneven yet admirably ambitious, Violet takes a thoughtful look at the occasionally profound difference between a person's private thoughts and public face.

Critic Reviews for Violet

Thanks in large part to Munn's elegant, authentic, grounded and moving performance, we're rooting hard for Violet to find some inner peace.

Justine Bateman has been around this business for most of her life, so there's clearly a lot of truth in the story she's telling [in Violet]. If only she'd let it speak for itself.

It's a very interesting film. Wonderfully well-made and complicated.

While the bumpy dramedy is a bit inside-baseball, Violet successfully shows how this professional's constant dialog with her inner critic (voice of Justin Theroux) cripples her.

Utilizing such overt stylization of a high-concept approach, "Violet" is a bit of a one-trick pony. But Bateman, as well as Munn, manage to pull it off in a feature-length format, and Violet's eventual hard-earned redemption is deeply satisfying.

The movie is built as a pastiche, with one visual or aural layer after another piling on until we can feel the visceral overwhelm of anxiety.
