Damsels In Distress is a sharp, deftly eccentric delight.Empire
Director Whit Stillman (The Last Days of Disco) returns after a 13-year hiatus with this joyous, wonderfully peculiar campus comedy about a group of beautiful but odd girls who, fed up with low standards and the boorish male-dominated environment, set out to revolutionize university life. Led by the somewhat delusional but well-meaning Violet (played by indie queen Greta Gerwig, Greenberg), the dynamic group try to rescue the fellow students of their East Coast university, extending their help to the clinically depressed by setting up the ‘suicide prevention centre’ where they obliviously dole out free doughnuts and tap-dancing classes, though the girls themselves are prone to mishaps, becoming entangled with the very boys they are rallying against.
