Storyline

Violet Jones (Lathan) doesn't realize it at first but she's dismayed by her superficial, "perfect" life. She has everything she thought she'd need - a successful career, friends and a boyfriend who is a handsome doctor (Whittle). When her fairy tale begins to unravel, so does she. This movie shows what a beautiful, smart, successful woman can do when she starts to look inward instead of outward! Written by Kim Poulton

Other awesome film of Haifaa Al-Mansour
21 September 2018 | by robindelosmadrilesSee all my reviews

Extraordinary film that talk about all the uncomfortable issues of our societies, anywhere.

I watched the film without knowing anything about it, and i was impacted for the sensibility of all the things that show. I was curious about who was behind this netflix production, and i was right thinking it was a brave and great woman.

Haifaa Al-Mansour has made few films but it is the kind of films it should more made. I am tired of finding empty and stupid films without values, without sense... pretentious and expensive, waste of money and time.

This production may connect with all cultures and countries, it has an universal feeling, that claim for the authenticity, and the simple things beyond the conventionalism and rules that chain our lives.

Dare!
