American Violet

A young single mother of four living in a small Texas town. Arrested during a drug raid and accused of a crime she didn't commit, Dee goes against the wishes of her mother, Alma, and rejects the plea-bargain that would free her from jail, but brand her as a felon for life. As word begins to spread that similar incidents are occurring in poor communities all across the country, Dee realizes that there are more mothers out there like her, and decides to take a stand against powerful district attorney Calvin Beckett. Now, despite being well aware of District Attorney Beckett's fierce reputation, Dee enlists the aid of ACLU attorney David Cohen and former narcotics officer Sam Conroy in overcoming the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that, if not navigated with the greatest of caution, now threaten to destroy her life. With the custody of her children on the line, one brave mother wages a valiant battle to strike at the very heart of the corrupt Texas justice system.

Michael M (ag) wrote: Starts off promising but dwindles into emotional vaguery that isn't helped by the script, which meanders to its unsurprising conclusion. Still, a solid performance from Thure Lindhardt and some erotic love-making scenes make it bearable - for the first hour at least.

James H (nl) wrote: A delightful family comedy that always has me bellowing with laughter with Robin Williams silliness, but clever comic timing and ridiculous voice acting. It's a film for children with divorced parents to help them understand and it doesn't end in an easy full circle way either. Which I like. This is a rewatchable cult classic and I love it.

Sebastian I (nl) wrote: Well.... it's sure not one of Clint's greatest but it's interesting... Once again Clint has got some fun quote that you can note mainly because of his character's rebelious and stubborn personality which is enjoyable to see as well. But on the other hand the ending is quite empty, you do expect more from him...

Edgar C (fr) wrote: The Nouvelle Vague directors had an otherwordly ability to display in their debuts a spectacular cinematography that reacted properly with either the characters, the situations, or even both.Simple-minded in its surface and thought-provoking at its core, Chabrol's debut is a powerful drama about a man that returns to his home town in the country after more than 10 years. However, he is not only surprised at the fact that his childhood friendship Serge is an alcoholic chauvinist, but also that he (Franois) begins unwillingly to hurt others more than just being a neutral visit. Progressively, characters begin to reveal their true faces, and most of them turn out to be more disgusting than what seemed at first glance. The film is also considered as the very first film of the French New Wave movement - although I'm inclined towards the minority that gives such credit to Varda's La pointe-Courte (1955).Chabrol was openly an admirer of Alfred Hitchcock, and the entire execution of Le Beau Serge is a clear evidence of this fact. Closely attached to Shadow of a Doubt (1943) plotwise, this is a drama that is promordially centered on the character Franois and how everything around him reacts to his presence, very similar to the character-centered thrillers of Hitchcock. Also, an antagonist of powerful presence challenges his persona within the story, role terrifically played by Grard Blain as the troubled Serge. The cinematography, numerous continuous shots and sequences of true tension slowly evolve as we keep moving forward, just like in a Hitchcock film, until the film shows its greatest talents with a terrific third act.I swear... These Nouvelle Vague guys in France had some of the greatest debuts in European cinema history...87/100
