"American Violet" - Now on DVD
Where was I when this movie came out in the theaters?
Thank God for Twitter. . .which is where I first heard about this powerful film based on a true-life story.
It's the story of a single mother falsely accused of distributing drugs in a school zone. Nicole Beharie gives an amazing performance as the woman whose convictions would not let her accept a plea deal from the racist DA. She decides to sue for discrimination and. . .well, if you want to know what happens, you'll have to rent it or better yet - buy it.
Also starring Alfre Woodard, Malcolm Barrett Charles Dutton and Xzibit.
