    Damsels In Distress—movie review

    Whit Stillman On Why His Comeback, 'Damsels in Distress,' Was Born Out of Rejection

    After a 14-year absence from feature filmmaking, Whit Stillman -- the beloved chronicler of preppy, privileged and highly literate youth -- makes his comeback this Friday with the release of "Damsels in Distress." Despite his time away from the big screen, Stillman hasn't been res...

    Listen To "The Sambola! International Dance Craze" From Whit Stillman's 'Damsels In Distress'

    You gotta hand it to Whit Stillman. After being away from screens for over a decade, he could've taken an easier path with a more accessible film, but you're not likely to see any movie this year as quirky, unique or distinct as "Damsels In Distress." The already high wire comedy c...

    Whit Stillman Plans To Team Greta Gerwig, Chloe Sevigny, Chris Eigeman & Adam Brody For Future Project, Says Jamaica-Set 'Dancing Mood' Won't Be Next Film

    Given how charming, winning and funny "Damsels In Distress" is (read our TIFF review here), we sincerely hope that we won't have to wait years and years for another Whit Stillman picture.
