Taken at face value, this new trailer for “Drive-Away Dolls” spells trouble for the target of everyone’s current love affair, Pedro Pascal. Although it preserves the mystery of exactly what’s in the suitcase that Margaret Qualley’s Jamie and Geraldine Viswanathan’s Marian currently possess, the unfortunate “suave guy’s head in a hatbox” looks to be none other than Pascal’s Dealer. He’s only one of many characters in desperate pursuit of the two eponymous dolls in question, intent on making life as difficult as possible for them as everyone’s on the hunt for that pesky suitcase. Luckily, nobody seems particularly good at their jobs, lending a welcome sense of hijinks to the whole affair.
“Drive-Away Dolls” marks the first solo feature for Ethan Coen (his brother Joel, meanwhile, made his very different solo debut with the Shakespeare adaptation “The Tragedy of Macbeth” in 2021), who co-wrote the script with Tricia Cooke. In addition to Qualley and Viswanathan, the film stars Pascal as “The Dealer,” Beanie Feldstein as the cop wrapped up in this little travelogue, Colman Domingo as “The Boss,” Joey Slotnick and C.J. Wilson as “The Hitmen,” and Matt Damon as “The Senator.” And the best part is we only have to wait until February 23, 2024, to catch all this manic mayhem in theaters.
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.
