'Damsels in Distress'

Whit Stillman wrote, produced, and directed a slew of successful comedies in the '90s, including the Oscar-nominated Metropolitan, and then he fell silent for decade. Stillman returned last year, with Damsels in Distress, a comedy about a group of girls at an East Coast college who try to help severely depressed students with a regime of cleanliness and dancing. Starring Adam Brody, Greta Gerwig, and Analeigh Tipton, the film premiered as the Closing Night film at the 2011 Venice Film Festival.
