It’s been a long time since Whit Stillman’s come out with a movie of any kind. The last movie that he made was 1998’s The Last Days of Disco. He has a fairly fervent fan base that love the four movies that he’s made since he came on to the scene in 1990 with Metropolitan.
He’s finally returning with the film Damsels in Distress. Stillman’s latest work revolves around a group of style-obsessed college girls who add a new student (Greta Gerwig) to their group. The group of girls begin trying to teach the new girl their misguided way of helping people at their “grungy” university.
Things sort of start falling apart for the group and the new girl when she meets a guy (Adam Brody) whom the girls don’t trust. Other actors that you’ll see in the movie include Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Carrie MacLemore, Jermaine Crawford and Aubrey Plaza.
Damsels in Distress will be out on a limited release starting on April 6.
