violeta_al_fin_-_trailer_oficial

Violeta, a newly divorced housewife, is quite happy with her new existence. She does new things, like taking swimming classes, and she plans to turn her childhood home in San José into a guest house. She lovingly tends to her garden, while occasionally talking to her long dead parents. Her children, grandchildren and good friends frequently come to visit her, but these, her loved ones, also have trouble accepting the fact that Violeta, at the age of 72, is changing.

VIOLETA AT LAST is a finely tuned portrait of a woman and her middle-class family. They live in a modern and safe Costa Rica, but they also have their economical struggles in a housing market that squeezes out those with middle income. Despite the challenges in her newly acquired independence, Violeta shows us that you can still be curious about life and have and appetite for the future as a septuagenarian.
