VIOLET EVERGARDEN: ETERNITY AND THE AUTO MEMORIES DOLL (Theatrical Release USA 2020)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll—charming, but complicated—introduces an interesting character in the personality of Violet Evergarden. The movie contains two stories that are not melded well. The animation is great and the concept fascinating, but the movie script needs a certain even-ness between the stories to become a truly quality watch.
