Today, we’re proud to premiere the poster for Whit Stillman‘s Damsels in Distress. The film centers on a group of women in college whose friendship is strained when they become romantically entangled with a series of men. Damsels is Stillman’s first film since 1998’s The Last Days of Disco, and I’m bummed that a last-minute schedule change at the Toronto International Film Festival caused me to miss it. Thankfully, Steve said it was great and the film is set to hit theaters this spring where I’ll be sure to catch it.
Hit the jump to check out the poster and here’s Steve’s exclusive interview with Stillman on the film. The film stars Greta Gerwig, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Carrie MacLemore, Analeigh Tipton, Hugo Becker, Ryan Metcalf, Billy Magnussen, and Adam Brody. Damsels in Distress opens in limited release on April 6th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Damsels in Distress:
Damsels in Distress is a comedy about a trio of beautiful girls as they set out to revolutionize life at a grungy American university – the dynamic leader Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sexy Heather (Carrie MacLemore). They welcome transfer student Lily (Analeigh Tipton) into their group, which seeks to help severely depressed students with a program of good hygiene and musical dance numbers. The girls become romantically entangled with a series of men – including smooth Charlie (Adam Brody), dreamboat Xavier (Hugo Becker), the mad frat-pack of Frank (Ryan Metcalf) and Thor (Billy Magnussen) – who threaten the girls’ friendship and sanity.
