Damsels in Distress


Introduced by Whit Stillman

Dir. Whit Stillman. 2011, 99 mins. Courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics. With Greta Gerwig, Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton. A trio of girls set out to change the male-dominated environment of the

Seven Oaks college campus—which only recently began accepting female students—and to rescue their fellow students from depression, bad fashion, and low standards. Greta Gerwig plays Violet, the awkward yet assertive leader of the group, in this Jane Austen-meets-Heathers-meets-a

dollop of French New Wave musical tale of preppy mores.
