Released in the US on Friday is Violet and Daisy, starring Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore) as Violet. Taking her Sin City role a step further, she and Saoirse Ronan play a pair of teenage assassins taking on New York criminals. They take on a job targeting a mysterious loner (James Gandolfini) who leads them into some twisty-turny plot.
Written and directed by Geoffrey Fletcher (Academy Award winning screenwriter for Precious) comes:
“a mesmerizing hybrid of New York City crime fable and existential coming-of-age drama. In VIOLET & DAISY teenage kicks match wits with adult-world turmoil, placing three wounded souls into a line of fire none expected – themselves.”
Check out the trailer here.
I couldn’t stop wondering how old Alexis is supposed to be (the pat-a-cake scene made me cringe) and her grip on those guns looks a little precarious but the movie looks like fun. Made in 2011, it’s encouraging that it has a theatrical release.
Will you be seeing it? If you’ve already seen it, I’d love to know what you thought.
Our little Rory’s all growed up!
