Written and directed by Whit Sillman (The Last Days of Disco), Damsels in Distress stars Greta Gerwig (Greenberg), Adam Brody (Scream 4), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy Stupid Love), Megalyn Echikunwoke (The 4400), Hugh Becker (The Assault) and Carrie MacLemore (Gossip Girl).
Three beautiful girls—Violet Wister (Gerwig), Rose (Echikunwoke) and Heather (MacLemore)—set out to revolutionise life at a grungy American university by forming a group which strives to help depressed students by advising them about good hygiene and teaching them musical dance numbers. After welcoming new student Lily (Tipton) into their group, the girls become romantically involved with a series of men who threaten the girls’ friendship and sanity.
Damsels in Distress premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival late last year to wide acclaim. It’s scheduled to hit U.K. cinemas on April 20.
