Editorial Reviews

Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) 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 (James Gandolfini) 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.

A few minutes after a startling and memorable opening sequence I started to wonder where Violet & Daisy was going.

Then, somewhere towards the end of its first third, things started to turn. The characters, the language and even the style of the piece evolved and landed the characters (and me) in a number of unexpected and poignant places. The film also stayed with me days after it ended and that was the last thing I expected to happen. Violet & Daisy packs heat but it also packs an emotional Trojan horse.

The imagery, editing and sound design are of a stylized and seamless universe. The use of symbolism (I'm still processing some of it) is something rarely seen in films these days - especially in those about hip young criminals coming of age.

I've always liked many of the actors in the cast but I never imagined that they would appear in the same film. (The ensemble is just one of the odd and intriguing elements at play here.) All of the actors delivered and did so with performances that were stark departures from their previous roles. Saoirse Ronan is funny, Alexis Bledel is psychotic and James Gandolfini is, in what might be his greatest film role of all, nothing short of sublime. Veterans like Danny Trejo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste are delightful, as are rising stars Tatiana Maslany and Cody Horn.

With Violet & Daisy, some have drawn comparisons to movies like Hanna, Kick-Ass and Sucker Punch. Those comparisons seem misplaced. Violet & Daisy reaches for something very different from those films and succeeds quite daringly.

I took a chance and was quite pleased.

Imagine if you will a universe where Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are paid hitmen working for Danny Trejo in another cameo role. Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) are downright enjoyable in this quirky dark comedy. This is a genius indie designed to give you a Merrillee Rush. Violet and Daisy come across an easy hit (James Gandolfini) which causes them to examine their lives...one where they met as doll surgeons and life is about a Barbara Sunday designer dress.

Some lines from the film:

About the number one killer: "He once killed 3 ninjas with a fingernail file."
Violet theology: "Heaven is a place...where everything is free or at least wholesale."
And "Everything is a test when you are a career woman."

Excellent musical score using classical rock tunes to give them new meaning.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Written by Geoffrey Fletcher, the first African-American to win an Oscar for best adapted screenplay - "Precious."

As I watched this film, I thought it might just end up a cult classic. Alot of people get shot, mostly by the two young female assassins, there is blood but not much gore if any. No nudity, but there is a bit of bad language. The movie is not fast paced, but steady. However, when people start getting shot the pace kicks into high gear real fast. This movie never lost my attention from beginning to end. The drama created by the two assassins and their intended victim is actually quite wonderfull, considering the subject matter. I suggest you watch this one and make up your own mind. I believe you will be quite satisfied that you did. Parts of this movie tend to stick in your mind well after the end credits roll. Besides the drama there is some humor and perhaps even tears for the viewer, so prepare yourself to be entertained.
