Film: Interview: Whit Stillman talks about Damsels In Distress and making movies again at last Whit Stillman made films every four years until he stopped. He debuted in 1990 with Metropolitan, which introduced viewers to the sort of characters who would populate his next two films: young people whose obsessive self-reflection often got in the way of their own happiness. Inspired by Jane Austen (and in some ways a riff on Mansfield Park), it similarly explored the relationship between manners and morals, and the ways they don’t always match up for characters still figuring out what they want to be when they grow up, even as they present themselves as adults to the rest .

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.
