Violet




Starring Sutton Foster, this is the story of a young woman's quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s, based on The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts.


Story:

Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.
