Staring Saoirse Ronan, Alexis Bledel, James Gandolfini, Danny Trejo, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste
Directed by Geoffrey S. Fletcher

It's weird...and ultimately not very good, but it's strangely intriguing. Geoffrey Fletcher previously wrote Precious, winning an Oscar for that film, and Violet & Daisy is a huge departure from that piece with a vibe that feels like the love child of Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson in terms of violence and quirkiness. Alexis Bledel is actually oddly charming and while Saoirse Ronan and the late James Gandolfini are also good, they seemingly realize that this material is a little bit beneath them.
My rating below is low, however, this one's an interesting disappointment. I can't say I wasted my time, but I can't exactly say you won't be wasting yours if you give this one a go.
The RyMickey Rating: C-
