Ethan Coen’s solo directorial debut with Tricia Cooke, Drive-Away Dolls, from Focus Features and Working Title has debuted its first wacky trailer!
The film follows Jamie (Margaret Qualley) in a post-breakup quest for a fresh start with her uptight friend Marian (Geraldine Viswanathan). They set off on a roadtrip to Tallahassee, only to have a run-in with a group of moronic criminals and their coveted briefcase.
The supporting cast includes well-known names including Beanie Feldstein, Pedro Pascal, Colman Domingo, Bill Camp and Matt Damon.
Coen is the Oscar-winning director and screenwriter of Fargo and No Country for Old Men, and Drive-Away Dolls marks his first departure from working with his brother, Joel Coen, who recently saw success on a solo project, The Tragedy of Macbeth, in 2021.
Both Coen and Cooke have stressed the film is nothing but fun, and it absolutely is a queer film, with Jamie and Marian’s relationship woven into the criminal tomfoolery the two find themselves in.
Drive-Away Dolls releases September 22 in theaters.
