      Tanya F. I've never seen a film like this. It went right under my skin. I felt like the filmmaker was reading my mind. I am really thinking about my own "voice" in my head now. I'm sure this film is going to get nominations for directing, writing, and acting. It's just so different. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/31/21 Full Review Lisa T This movie accurately portrays what it's like to live with mental health issues and the battles associated with it. If you are struggling, you are not alone. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Steve D The premise is a bit on the nose but the execution is far better than expected and Munn shows she can be a star. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/20/23 Full Review Laura H Absolute work of art. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/17/23 Full Review Jaan B As a person whose mind rarely takes a break, I can relate. Perhaps not as volatile, but pretty ruthless. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/04/23 Full Review dave d Annoying at times, and brilliant at others, Justine Bateman's 'Violet' is a mixed bag that most certainly won't be for everyone. It is, however, unlike any film I've ever seen. Olivia Munn is incredibly real in a role that needs someone who can display a multitude of emotions. We have an internal voice and some words on the screen and that can prove distracting. The central aspect of the film is fear and the human condition. At the core, it's brilliant. Justin Theroux (Voiceover) is the conscious of our titular character. There are also captions that make this more complete, but there are times it's just too much. The film is also fairly predictable. The overarching message is powerful. Rid yourself of toxicity! Intense, but thoughtful and a wonderful debut from Bateman. Final Score: 6.8/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times Thanks in large part to Munn's elegant, authentic, grounded and moving performance, we're rooting hard for Violet to find some inner peace. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 11, 2021 Full Review Christy Lemire RogerEbert.com 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. Rated: 2/4 Nov 5, 2021 Full Review Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It's a very interesting film. Wonderfully well-made and complicated. Nov 5, 2021 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews In Violet, Justine Bateman gives a voice to the generations who are fighting silent battles with the voices in their head, highlighting the need for empathy and compassion. Rated: 4/5 Aug 26, 2023 Full Review David Gonzalez The Cinematic Reel A film that gives us Olivia Munn’s career-best performance and explores gender politics and our inner voices, while offering a subjective experience that allows the viewer to decipher the film’s themes and messages. Rated: 3/4 Jan 31, 2023 Full Review Dallas King Flick Feast Screenwriting legend Robert McKee said “characters must change… and the change must come from within”. Violet is a rather literal interpretation of this rule but is ultimately an empowering tale of believing in oneself. Rated: 4/5 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
