Yahoo! has published the first trailer for the directorial debut of Precious screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher, Violet & Daisy.
The film centres on a pair of perky teenage assassins who have second thoughts about their latest job.
Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel play the two teens, with Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Danny Trejo, and James Gandolfini also featuring.
Violet & Daisy opens in the US on June 7th, with no Irish release date as of yet.
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 cancelled.
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.
From Academy Award-winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher (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.
