Movie Preview: American Violet

I haven't heard a ton of buzz surrounding American Violet, a little film scheduled to hit theaters in limited release on April 17, but the few reviews that have come out about it have been mostly positive. In particular, the performance by newcomer Nicole Beharie at the heart of it seems to elevate the film from average to definitely worth watching.

Based on a true story, the movie revolves around a 24-year-old single mother, Dee, who is wrongfully accused of being a drug dealer. "Even though Dee has no prior drug record and no drugs were found on her in the raid or any subsequent searches, she is offered a hellish choice: plead guilty and go home as a convicted felon or remain in prison and fight the charges thus, jeopardizing her custody and risking a long prison sentence." Despite her mother's advice against it, Dee decides to fight.

I like what I've heard about this movie. That's sad that it's based on a true story.

I hadn't heard of this movie, but it looks really well-done. Nicole Beharie looks fantastic in the trailer. Note that I didn't make a "yo dawg i herd you like movies" joke re: Xzibit. (Except I did.)
