The two cutest little hitwomen you’ve seen take an ”easy job” so they can afford pretty new dresses. Ecquipped with carpenter pants, lollipops and guns, Violet and Daisy ride their red tricycle to the vic’s apartment. A quick in-and-out? You bet your little hiney it isn’t.

Via a cookie baking James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), a gang of meanies and secrets by the gumdrop, things get complicated.

Things aren’t as peachy as they seem in this lovely, violent caramel of a film. You don’t just get to sit there and laugh (although you still do, it just kind of hurts). Written and directed by Geoffrey Fletcher (who also wrote critically acclaimed Precious), with amazing leading ladies Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls, Sin City, Mad Men) and Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones), this might just be your kind of popsicle. Because from the gorgeous photography to the brilliant dialogue, Violet & Daisy is swell from start to finish. Perfect, in fact.
