Watch: Trailer For Whit Stillman’s Unique ‘Damsels In Distress’ Lands

Watch: Trailer For Whit Stillman's Unique 'Damsels In Distress' Lands

Joining a handful of filmmakers making their return last year including Lynne Ramsay, Cameron Crowe and Alexander Payne, Whit Stillman showed he still had the goods when he unveiled “Damsels In Distress” at the Venice and Toronto film festivals last year. Filled with this trademark patter, distinct style and a tone and mood that all his his own, the film isn’t for everyone, but for those willing to go along for the ride, it’s worth the watch.

Starring Greta Gerwig, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Carrie MacLemore, the film follows the quartet of girls as they try to impact lives of women — in their own strange and oddball way — on the campus of the fictional prep school Seven Oaks. Naturally boys, sex and romance tip the scales and complicate matters in this hyper stylized movie that requires a certain willingness from viewers to play along. The first trailer is a pretty good taste of what’s to come even if it focuses mostly on the quips, and overall “Damsels In Distress” is a film we enjoyed at TIFF even if it did wind up running out of steam by the end.

The film will start rolling out on April 6th, so take a look below.
