A new trailer for Academy Award-winning writer Geoffrey Fletcher’s (Precious) first directing venture Violet & Daisy has been released.  The film centers on two young female assassins, played by Saiorse Ronan (Atonement) and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), who set out for what they think will be a quick and easy hit, but turns into something much more complicated when their target throws a wrench in the works.  The marketing and posters for the film thus far have seemed to be going for that pulpy and modern pop take on young women in today’s society, like Spring Breakers, but the trailer gives off a tone that seems a bit muddled.  It has elements of quirky comedy and a more serious and dire consequences drama, but not a clear vision that can be derived just from the trailer.

Ronan hasn’t really made a huge misstep in her career yet, even with The Host underperforming recently, so I hope she brings some of the intensity we saw in Hanna to this new girl assassin.  Bledel has been playing it cool careerwise lately, but I was a huge fan of her work in Gilmore Girls and last year on Mad Men.  Having an impressive cast surrounding them bolsters the idea that this film could be good, but the trailer is just a weird mishmash.

Here’s the official synopsis for Violet & Daisy:

Violet and Daisy are a pair of gum-cracking teenage assassins who casually snuff out crime figures in New York City, distracted only by the fact that a concert by their favorite pop idol Barbie Sunday has suddenly been canceled.

Determined to raise cash for some Barbie Sunday dresses, the duo takes on a new hit job targeting a mysterious loner who leads them into an unexpected odyssey of self-examination and catapults the junior enforcers into a world beyond Barbie Sunday and bullets for pay.
