REVIEW: Drive-Away Dolls (2024 Film) Starring Margaret Qualley and Beanie Feldstein

"Drive-Away Dolls" begins in the waning days of 1999 with a gripping scene at a Philadelphia bar, thrusting viewers into a deadly confrontation involving Santos (Pedro Pascal), setting the stage for the chaotic journey ahead. The narrative then shifts to Jamie (Margaret Qualley) and Sukie (Beanie Feldstein), whose turbulent relationship propels Jamie into an impromptu road trip with her friend Marian (Geraldine Viswanathan). Unbeknownst to them, their spontaneous escapade unwittingly plunges them into a perilous odyssey of mistaken identities, criminal entanglements, and a peculiar cargo, culminating in a bizarre showdown with a corrupt senator.

Promising an uproarious fusion of comedy, suspense, and political satire, "Drive-Away Dolls" ultimately fails to fully realize its potential. Despite an undeniably intriguing premise, director Ethan Coen struggles to fully exploit its inherent absurdity, resulting in a film that feels lackluster and derivative.
