Damsels in Distress

After a 14 year hiatus, Whit Stillman has a new film, “Damsels in Distress”. “Metropolitan, “Barcelona” and “Last Days of Disco, Stillman’s earlier movies, mirrored my own coming-of-age experiences. “Damsels in Distress” is not a continuation of the first three films, yet it mines the same preppy, upper-crusty mores. I hear it is really good and cannot wait to see it.

  • Whit Stillman’s film are really great. Eventhough i’m not from the same background as the characters in his films, I find them very charming and interesting. Can’t wait to see this.

  • that criterion mseatred either Metropolitian or The Last Days Of Disco when they brought those titles, but he couldn’t remember which one. Whichever one it is may well see a criterion blu release down the line.2 Regarding the release date for Damsels In Distress Mr Stillman said April 6th for North America, New Zealand get it two weeks after that. He is hoping it will make it’s UK debut around the same time, if not, expect it in the fall.Overall, the experience was lovely, with Mr Stillman answering questions throughout the screening, often regarding locations and actors. I asked him to what degree the Charlie character is based of him lots was the simple answer. This was a must for any Stillman fan, and I’d welcome similiar treatment for his other movies.

  • I hate to say this, but having just seen the TIFF spiecal presentation of Damsels, I have a hard time seeing anyone lining up to back another Stillman picture. I love his movies, and was quite taken with the new one, but if anything it’s less accessible to a broad audience (it’s certainly “weirder”). Here’s hoping I’m wrong.
