Dir. Whit Stillman, 2012, 35mm, 99 min.

“Making a welcome return to helming after a long sabbatical, Stillman proves he still knows how to write crackling, articulate dialogue for quirky preppie characters whom he loves laughing at as much as with. Dedicated to making Seven Oaks U. (their alma mater) a more fragrant and pleasant place, sweet-natured Violet (Greta Gerwig) and her friends seek to combat the Neanderthal male populace’s body-odor problem by promoting good hygiene, and stoically accept it’s their lot in life to date frat boys far more stupid and less good-looking than themselves. Positively boiling with sharp, almost casually dispensed zingers…Stillman’s screenplay is a thing of beauty. Comic timing is likewise right on the money, but in a largely self-effacing, quietly efficient way that recalls the old-school craftsmen of Hollywood’s golden age, like Howard Hawks in a breezy mood. A film that raises laughs even with its end credits, Stillman’s whimsical campus comedy is an utter delight.” — Leslie Felperin, Variety
