About Drive-Away Dolls Movie:

Drive-Away Dolls is an American comedy road film directed by Ethan Coen. Coen wrote the screenplay with his wife Tricia Cooke; they also produced the film with Robert Graf and Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. It stars Margaret Qualley, Geraldine Viswanathan, Beanie Feldstein, Colman Domingo, Pedro Pascal, Bill Camp, and Matt Damon. Qualley and Viswanathan play two lesbian friends who are running from mobsters on the road with a briefcase that the mobsters are after.

Ethan Coen and his wife, Tricia Cooke, first pitched the idea for the film to their friend Allison Anders during a Christmas vacation in San Francisco in the early 2000s. The film was announced in January 2007 under the title Drive-Away Dykes, with Anders attached to direct. Coen said the tone was similar to the early 1970s exploitation romance films he saw as a teenager.

Filming began in August 2022 in Pittsburgh, with Ari Wegner serving as cinematographer. Production occurred in Hopewell Township, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, and in Lawrence, Washington County, Pennsylvania in October 2022.

Drive-Away Dolls was released in Australia and the United States on February 22, 2024. The film was originally scheduled to be released on September 22, 2023, but was delayed due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike. The film is set to be released in the United Kingdom on March 15, 2024.
