Whit Stillman Talks Making 'Damels In Distress,' His Connection To The Current Generation & More
fb.indiewire.com Yes, it’s been a while since Whit Stillman released a film. But that story has already been done to death. The important fact is that Stillman is back, rejuvenated, and from the sound of our recent interview, looking to get back in the saddle again soon. While “Damsels in Distress” may appear on the surface to share similarities with the likes of “Heathers” or “Mean Girls,” as has been the case with Stillman’s past films, it’s best not to approach his work with any preconceived notions.

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.
