A beguiling portrait of grief and brotherhood seen through teenage eyes.

As they cycle through the streets, a group of BMX riders remember the life of their murdered friend. The one with the real answers, however, is 15-year-old Jesse. As the only one to bear witness to the crime, he is forced to live in the shadow of what he saw. A visceral, permissive drama from a directorial newcomer, Violet uses a dreamlike style to portray a heartfelt account of a very human grieving process. [12A]
