“Back after a thirteen-year hiatus, Whit Stillman (director of Metropolitan, Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco) returns with Damsels in Distress — a film that is distinctly offbeat, even manic, compared to his classic nineties comedies of manners, and yet retains his precise wit and refined dialogue — all executed with vintage Stillman aplomb. True to the director’s oeuvre, his latest film takes a unique look into the psyche of privileged American youth, this time focus­ing on a group of undergraduates at a leafy East Coast university that has only recently begun to accept female students. The film stars Greta Gerwig as Violet, a kind of post-modern Jane Austen character. Prim, proper and extremely odd, Violet is alpha to a trio of attractive girls who’ve vowed to improve anyone they deem in need — but when she’s betrayed by her (wildly inferior) beau and begins to pine for a new flame (Adam Brody), her orderly world starts to crumble. A heady yet deceptively light take on the all-girl clique sub-genre best exemplified by Heathers and Clueless, Stillman takes that beloved formula to new, often-surreal heights. Better still: it contains several dance numbers!” – Cameron Bailey, Toronto Int’l Film Festival. Whit Stillman will be at the Cinefamily in person for a Q&A and reception on opening night (June 1st!) Plus, he’ll also be in person the next night, at our The Last Days Of Disco!
Dir. Whit Stillman, 2011, 35mm, 99 min.
