Geoffrey S. Fletcher's oddball "Violet & Daisy" casts Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan as a pair of assassins whose major target (James Gandolfini) proves to be a quandary. What makes the movie really interesting is the contrast between the title characters: Violet is the tough one, while Daisy is the impressionable one. But Gandolfini's Michael is another story.
This is not any sort of great movie. More than anything it's a quirky movie. I liked the side stories, such as what happens when the title characters go out to buy bullets. But the movie's main purpose is to show the evolution of the title characters' relationship with their target. It's an OK movie. Also starring Danny Trejo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste (of "Secrets & Lies").
