In Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli’s deeply disturbing debut feature, a traumatic betrayal drives a woman towards a vengeful extremity.

Miriam (Madeleine Sims-Fewer) is a woman treading water. In a loveless marriage, Miriam hopes to find direction through a weekend reunion with her estranged younger sister Greta her affable husband, Dylan, in their picturesque lakeside home. Over the weekend, the sisters ratchet up to a conversational minefield unveiling one another’s sensitivities and histories.

A cleverly scripted and superbly performed chamber piece subverting the revenge thriller genre, Violation sees Madeleine Sims-Fewer - who not only co-wrote, co-directed and co-produced Violation with Dusty Mancinelli – deliver a committed, full-bodied performance as Miriam, a woman unalterably changed by her violation.

Recalling uncomfortable simmering extremities of a Lars von Trier psychodrama, Violation is a confronting and unflinching character study that recognises some horrors cannot be so easily exorcised or reconciled.
