"A film that raises laughs even with its end credits, Whit Stillman's whimsical campus comedy Damsels in Distress is an utter delight. Making a welcome return to helming after a long sabbatical following 1998's The Last Days of Disco, Stillman proves he still knows how to write crackling, articulate dialogue for quirky preppie characters who he loves laughing at as much as with." -- Leslie Felperin, Variety

A trio of girls set out to change the male-dominated environment of the Seven Oaks University campus and rescue their fellow students from depression, grunge, and low standards of every kind.
