Won't Someone Save Curlie?

Drive-Away Dolls
Focus Features (2024)
This Ethan Cohen road film, co-starring Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan isn't going to be for everybody, but I thought it was a great film with witty dialogue and a lot of moments that had me laughing my ass off.

I've only seen one other movie featuring the lead actresses before today: Qualley played Manson family member Ruth Ann Moorehouse (aka: Pussycat) in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and Viswanathan was one of the three daughters in the 2018 coming-of-age comedy Blockers.  Both were fantastic in those films, and although their romantic chemistry in Drive-Away Dolls felt a bit off, they both delivered a great performance overall.
