Greta Gerwig stars as Violet Wister, an East Coast university student who takes great offence at her campus’s grungy odour and outmoded patriarchal customs. With a trio of fellow female students, Violet sets about re-educating her male peers, only to fall into the predictable trap of youthful apathy when her boyfriend betrays her. Her girlfriends, too, it transpires, could do with learning a thing or two about the opposite sex. Damsels in Distress is a deadpan gem from Whit Stillman, an often-overlooked master of observational comedy.
Contains moderate sex references, language and suicide references.
Damsels in Distress, dir. Wilt Stillman, USA 2011, 99 mins
