A visionary film unafraid to take chances
28 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Violet & Daisy is a bold and compelling new film written and directed by the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Precious, Geoffrey Fletcher. The film is violent and funny but also has an emotional core that is unflinchingly true. The heroines of the film are wonderfully played by Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel. Ronan brings her amazing skills as an actress and creates one of her most original and fully realized roles in the part of Daisy. Bledel brings her signature sense of humor but also unleashes her vicious side in a way that no one has ever seen before. The chemistry between the two stars is undeniable and from the first frame we are rooting for these two lost girls and their friendship. That Fletcher not only cast these two actors but also made us fall in love with them is a testament not only to the script but his skills as a director.

The dialogue in the film is witty, whimsical and complex, reminiscent of the banter from classics of the Hollywood Golden Age such as His Girl Friday combined with the existential questioning of a Godard film. The movie is packed with twists and turns, jokes and pathos and I know that I did not get everything on the first viewing. The film is visually stunning with intricately structured shots, long takes and juxtapositions, but every shot serves the film and creates a satisfying whole. Anyone paying attention will see that Fletcher possesses a new voice that is not afraid to take chances and those who watch and listen carefully will be rewarded with a movie experience that will go far beyond an initial viewing.
