Trailer Park Is Young at Heart
'Violet & Daisy,' Judy Blume, and ice cream
By Monica Riese, 3:55PM, Fri. May. 3
Teenage assassins, love in the time of food trucks, and the first film adaptation of a Judy Blume novel. Trailer Park has it all.
Jess Weixler (Somebody Up There Likes Me) and Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) star in this dramedy about a law school dropout (her) subbing in at an ice cream truck and being courted by a guy she doesn't remember (him). Antics ensue.
Judy Blume's 1981 young adult novel is coming to the screen – the first Blume adaptation to do so – and it's going to be directed by the author's son, so we expect it will meet her expectations.
Violet & Daisy
Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel is all grown up, and now she's … a hired gun? Together with Saoirse Ronan, Bledel's Violet heads into what's supposed to be a simple job when something goes horribly wrong. James Gandolfini and Danny Trejo complicate everything.
