VIOLET EVERGARDEN: ETERNITY AND THE AUTO MEMORY DOLL reunites the television show’s directors and cast—including Yui Ishikawa (Attack on Titan) as Violet—for the first feature film in the Evergarden series. After returning from war, ex-soldier Violet Evergarden takes on a job ghostwriting letters for strangers. Although she struggles with her emotions, interpreting the feelings of others into the written word helps Violet come to terms with her own loss. Two conjoined, but separate stories introduce new clients: Isabella, a forlorn heiress desperate to escape the confines of ladylike expectations, and Taylor, a young illiterate orphan who enthusiastically dreams of becoming a postman. Violet’s compassion for her new friends, along with stunningly detailed animation and a stirring score, crescendo to moments that will tug on heartstrings and leave audiences with bittersweet tears of both joy and despair.
