Drive- Away Dolls Is An Off-Kilter And Quirky Romantic Comedy Trip

Marian (Geraldine Viswanathan), is going through hard times in her life. Her friend Jamie (Margaret Qualley) convinces her that she needs to join her in a needed getaway as they drive to Florida in a one-way drop-off service.

Jamie and Marian are both platonic friends but are at the opposite end of the Lesbian community as Jamie is very promiscuous and is always looking for new encounters even at the cost of her relationships while Marian is a very button-down wallflower.

When they pick up the car to begin their trip; they are confused for a courier who expected a valuable case and package to be in the trunk of a car; the very car that Marian and Jamie have driven away with and now find themselves followed by two thugs who are under pressure from their boss (Colman Domingo) to find the girls and recover the case no matter what.

Oblivious to all the commotion; the girls travel along and find things difficult as Jamie finds company in every town and forces Marian to leave their room to read in the lobby or leave a party where she is in turn arrested as she tries to find her way back to the hotel.

What follows is a crazy and at times bizarre love story as the two stumble into a situation beyond their control and must contend with staying alive and the issues in their lives.

The film is the sort of quirky tale one might expect from Ethan Cohen and it is packed with plenty of sex and more than a few laughs along the way. Combined with a winning cast makes “Drive- Away Dolls” an off-kilter entertainment experience.
