“Violet” premiered earlier this year at SXSW and later played at the Toronto International Film Festival. It is now playing in theaters and will be on video on demand on November 9th from Relativity Media. If you have not seen it yet, it’s one of the best indie films of the year as we follow a film executive (Olivia Munn) who is constantly battling a voice inside her head (Justin Theroux) telling her she isn’t good enough. Director, writer and producer Justine Bateman was kind enough to spend a few minutes chatting with us about where the idea for the film came from, her feelings on the film’s themes, people finally getting a chance to see it during the pandemic, and more. Please take a listen down below and enjoy!
