If you are a fan of Saoirse Ronan, star of Stephenie Meyer’s ‘The Host’ film adaptation, then we have an update for you!
The first trailer for Ronan’s new film ‘Violet and Daisy’ has been released! The story follows a pair of young assassins whose target proves to be much more involved than they had initially planned. Co-starring beside Ronan is Alexis Bledel, star of the hit ABC Family show, ‘Gilmore Girls.’ The film was directed by Geoffrey Fletcher.
This is the synopsis given for the film:
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, only to discover a kind of reckoning in the form of sad-sack shut-in (James Gandolfini) who is dying alone of terminal cancer. He persuades the duo to kill him out of mercy, prompting an odyssey of self-examination that 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.
