The naming of Saoirse Ronan's character Daisy was an intentional tribute to the Czech New Wave film Daisies (1966), another film about two young girls who experience an odyssey of self-examination. See more »
The reason that Daisy recognizes the legendary assassin Number 1 on sight is because of the "1" clearly emblazoned on the sleeve of her suit. See more »

What are we going to do now?
I'll think of something.

There is a mid-credits scene that depicts a group of young girls performing "surgery" on dolls and stuffed animals in a doll hospital. See more »
Violet & Daisy is about 2 teen girls assassins who take on one last job in order to buy some dresses they really want. This is the first movie I watched from writer/director Geoffrey Fletcher, reviewing his profile he didn't do much else beside this movie and you can kinda tell.
The movie is somewhat disjointed and the script feels like it's been written by a 12 year old girl. Strangely enough the somewhat childish dialogue and behaviour of the characters combined with the well-done action/violence kinda works for this movie and I was quite sucked in. The 2 teenage assassins played by Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan are well cast and perfectly fill the role of naive assassins.
I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone expecting an action flick or a deep/moral story. If you're just looking for an easy to watch movie with some good-looking young woman you'll probably like it 7/10
