'Violet and Daisy,' the directorial debut from Geoffrey Fletcher (Academy Award-winning screenwriter of 'Precious,' of all things), stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins. The film struggles to showcase the duplicitous nature of societal projections onto young women with its twee style and stylized dialogue, and even a look beneath the surface finds little else beyond its saccharine trappings.
Earlier tonight we heard that FOX had picked up four major new dramas to series, though the network's announcements are far from over. FOX has also granted series orders to 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's new detective comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' under 'Parks and Recreation' showrunner Mike Schur,' along with Seth MacFarlane's 'Dads' and three others. Get the inside scoop on FOX's new comedy lineup inside!
Though the 'Mad Men' episode "Dark Shadows" aired a number of weeks ago, and certainly isn't the most recent shocker to come from the series of late, many people are still talking about Alexis Bledel's risque turn as adulterous housewife Beth.

How about 'Gilmore Girls' series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino?
