New Pics Of Greta Gerwig, Analeigh Tipton, Adam Brody & The Cast In Whit Stillman's 'Damsels In Distress'
fb.indiewire.com For the girls at Seven Oaks, most life's problems can be solved by dancing, good hygiene and even proper perfume. Sound odd? Well, welcome to the arch, hilarious world of Whit Stillman and his latest "Damels In Distress." No, this isn't a broadly appealing, R-rated riff like "21 Jump Street," but for those looking for something little witty, a bit out there and definitely unique, the latest from the long absent filmmaker will fit the bill.

Damsels in Distress Synopsis and Credits

DAMSELS IN DISTRESS follows a trio of beautiful girls who set out to revolutionize life at a grungy East Coast College – the dynamic leader Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sexy Heather (Carrie MacLemore). They welcome transfer student Lily (Tipton) into their group which seeks to help severely depressed students with a program of good hygiene and musical dance numbers. The girls become romantically entangled with a series of men -- including slick Charlie (Brody), dreamboat Xavier (Hugo Becker) and the mad frat pack of Frank (Ryan Metcalf) and Thor (Billy Magnussen)—who threaten the girls’ friendship and sanity.
