"Violet & Daisy"
Director: Geoffrey Fletcher
Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Alexis Bledel, Danny Trejo, James Gandolfini
In theaters: June 7
Why it should be on your radar: The last time we heard from Geoffrey Fletcher he was accepting an Academy Award for writing 2009's "Precious." Since then, he's offered up his directorial debut, which played the 2011 Toronto Film Festival to mixed reaction but is finally getting a release this summer. It will be a nice opportunity to touch base with the scribe and see where his career is likely to go next and of the films I've written up for this collective, it's the one I haven't seen (but am looking forward to catching).
