'Drive-Away Dolls' Looks Like This Generation's 'Thelma and Louise' in Hilarious and Action-Packed Trailer

Geraldine Viswanathan and Margaret Qualley are on the run from bumbling criminals in Ethan Coen's first project since 2018.

A new trailer for the upcoming film Drive-Away Dolls has the internet buzzing. The humorous and action-packed trailer has garnered over 4.4 million views and introduces us to two young women who unintentionally become swept up in a wild caper.

The film, in theaters on February 23, 2024,  has some massive names attached to it. The script is penned by Ethan Coen and his wife Tricia Cooke. Coen, one-half of the consistently brilliant Coen Brothers writer/director duo (The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men, Fargo), also directs Dolls, promising an eccentric adventure that will sizzle with authenticity and be instantaneously propelled to cult-favorite status. In front of the camera, the much beloved Matt Damon and Pedro Pascal support the titular Dolls, played by Geraldine Viswanathan and Margaret Qualley.

Per Focus Features, the comedic adventure revolves around Jamie (Qualley), an unrestrained free spirit, lamenting yet another breakup with her girlfriend, and her reserved friend, Marian (Viswanathan), who craves a more carefree approach to life. Seeking a new beginning, the dynamic duo sets off on an unplanned road trip to Tallahassee. However, their journey takes an unexpected turn when they encounter a bumbling group of criminals during their travels. Chaos ensues as hilarity and misadventures ensnare them, making their trip anything but ordinary.

Dolls marks Coen's first return to filmmaking since The Ballad of Buster Scruggs in 2018. The process had become too much like a job, he said. But during the pandemic, he and his wife dusted off the untitled "lesbian road trip project" he'd been chipping away at with Cooke since the early 2000s.

Qualley, daughter of Andie MacDowell (Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and model Paul J. Qualley, is best known for her performances in The Leftovers and Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood as well as her lead role in the heartrending Netflix biopic about the struggles of poverty and single motherhood, Maid. Viswanathan had breakout performances in the comedies Blockers and The Package before tackling a dramatic role as a 17-year-old Pakistani American teenager in Hala, which offered a fresh look at teenage identity moratorium.
