Description


As part of Adoption Week Scotland, Families for Children will be screening the award winning feature film ‘And Violet’

And Violet is a coming of age drama about the interwoven and unravelling lives of teenage daughter Violet, her adoptive Mum and her birth Mum. When Violet and her adoptive mum Cathy visit a small Scottish town one summer, they unexpectedly run into Violet's estranged birth-mum Zoe. The mothers clash and Violet struggles to navigate this complicated relationship. Cathy struggles to help her, as she becomes increasingly confused and angry. The meeting also triggers something in Zoe, and she decides to change the direction of her life, returning to Edinburgh. It is the city where Violet lives, but it is also a city that holds dark memories of a difficult past. Violet and Zoe connect again and begin an illicit online communication, but Cathy finds out and ends all contact. Violet rebels against her and as Zoe self-destructively spirals out of control, Cathy has to urgently try to find a way back in to Violet's life.

AND VIOLET is a double winner at Arizona International Film Festival 2017, winning Best Dramatic Feature as well as a Special Jury Award for Best Performance for Hana MacKenzie. More information as well as a trailer for the film can be found here http://www.andviolet.co.uk
