Geoffrey Fletcher's (screenwriter of "Precious") directorial debut "Violet & Daisy" has just received a boost of British class, as Marianne Jean-Baptiste has joined the cast of the film. Who?

But hopefully, her appearance here will help turn that around (though she is a longstanding fixture on the TV series "Without A Trace.")
