Damsels in Distress

  • Director: Whit Stillman
  • Genre(s): Comedy
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Running Time: 99 min.

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, principled Rose and sexy Heather. They welcome transfer student Lily 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, dreamboat Xavier and the mad frat pack of Frank and Thor—who threaten the girls’ friendship and sanity. (Sony Pictures Classics)

"Welcome Damsels in Distress, an exhilarating gift of a comedy about college, the female intellect, the limitless male ego, inventing a new dance, and suicide prevention."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Even were it not so delightful, Damsels in Distress, set at a fictional upper-crust college, would deserve a watch for its dialogue alone."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, NPR
"Even though I'm not sure I understand what Stillman was going for minute-to-minute, I was swept away by how original Damsels is, and how funny."
- Noel Murray, The A.V. Club
