Olivia Munn lets loose in this poison pen letter to Hollywood. The directorial debut of Justine Bateman, VIOLET opened to raves from the SXSW 2021.
What would you do if you weren’t afraid? After realizing she’s spent years allowing fear to drive every decision she makes, Violet (Olivia Munn) must learn to silence her relentlessly negative inner thoughts (voiced by Justin Theroux) in order to regain control over her life.
“Olivia Munn has also never been better, and it’s a delight seeing the range she does possess in Justine Bateman’s hands.” - Robert Kojder, Flickering Myth
“While Bateman’s more florid touches sometimes wear, Munn is so devastatingly good at selling Violet’s internal strife that it’s easy to forgive Bateman’s other creative impulses. With a star this well-suited for the role, Bateman has already proven her salt as a keen-eyed filmmaker.” - Kate Erbland, IndieWire
