Set during the controversial Bush
2000 elections, American Violet
is the story of a single mother who is wrongfully caught-up in a drug raid. Newcomer, Nicole Beharie,
stars in the film along with Hollywood legend Alfre Woodard
. Critics have already raved about the film, especially Beharie's performance. It's great to see a movie studio take a risk on an up and coming actress. You can be sure to get the latest on American Violet
