‘Drive-Away Dolls’ Trailer: Ethan Coen’s Road Trip Comedy Stars Margaret Qualley, Geraldine Viswanathan, And Beanie Feldstein

While Joel Coen has pretty much established his solo directing career already, brother Ethan Coen is hoping to go from 0 to 60 with Drive-Away Dolls. The queer road trip comedy stars a to-die-for cast of Margaret Qualley, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Beanie Feldstein on an impromptu journey to Tallahassee. Of course, everything goes wrong and they get mixed up with a bunch of criminals.

Coen directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with his wife, Tricia Cooke. Along with the core trio, there are a lot of fun cameos including Matt Damon, Colman Domingo, Pedro Pascal, Bill Camp, and Miley Cyrus. You can tell this one was a blast to shoot.

The talent in front of the camera is matched on those on the other side. Carter Burwell, a Coen Brothers favorite, is back to compose the score. The cinematography is by Ari Wegner, whose incredible work can be seen in The Power of the Dog, Zola, The Wonder, and Eileen.

Here’s the synopsis for Drive-Away Dolls: Written by Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke, this comedy caper follows Jamie, an uninhibited free spirit bemoaning yet another breakup with a girlfriend, and her demure friend Marian, who desperately needs to loosen up. In search of a fresh start, the two embark on an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals along the way. Directed by Ethan Coen.

Focus Features will release Drive-Away Dolls into theaters on February 23rd.
