From writer-director-actor Edward Burns comes this romantic drama about the necessity to reconcile with the past in order to move forward into the future. Brilliant novelist Patti Petalson (Selma Blair) may be on the verge of becoming the next great American writer but, at the moment, she's in a slump. As her marriage with her husband (Donal Logue) becomes increasingly rancorous, old flame and fellow successful writer Brian Callahan (Patrick Wilson) pops back into her life. Despite an initial mood of resentment between them, their love begins to blossom again and they must figure out if they were truly meant to be together. Meanwhile, their friends Michael "The Murph" Murphy (Edward Burns) and Kate Scott (Debra Messing) must deal with a past relationship of their own. Co-starring Dennis Farina and Max Baker (LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT, CONSTANTINE), PURPLE VIOLENTS, like many of Burns's films, is a love letter to New York City partially in the tradition of Woody Allen.
