According to Deadline, the new Ethan Cohen feature “Drive-Away Dolls” has an official release date of September 22nd, 2023—the comedy feature film from one-half of the Coen Bros. stars Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan. Focus Features will distribute the film.
The cast includes names such as Pedro Pascal, Coleman Domingo, Beanie Feldstein, Matt Damon, and Bill Camp. The story reportedly follows two young women going on a last-minute road trip to change their problem-riddled lives. As they head towards Tallahassee, things go wrong as they cross paths with unserious criminals. Ethan Coen, who co-wrote the film with his wife, editor Tricia Cooke, will also direct.
After we got Joel Coen’s solo project, “The Tragedy Of Macbeth,” many have been waiting anxiously to see what Ethan would deliver on his own next. His documentary film “Jerry Lee Lewis: Trouble in Mind” premiered at Cannes last year but has yet to be released by A24. “Drive-Away Dolls” will mark the first narrative feature Ethan Cohen has worked on since “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” The ensemble is terrific on paper, and we’re very interested and excited to see how it will deliver on its premise.
