News reports of the Bush-Gore re-count struggle punctuate the story, both setting the period and reminding viewers that the 2008 election had a rather different outcome. Yet the news that's most pertinent to the movie's message is the recent coverage of drug-cartel feuds in Mexico. While American Violet's target is racism, its view of the U.S. "war on drugs" is especially timely.

Directed competently by Tim Disney (Walt's great-nephew), American Violet provides no real jolts, either narratively or psychologically. But the performances are persuasive and nuanced, illustrating the many ways people accept injustice — and, occasionally, compensate for past acceptances.
