Damsels In Distress (2011)

Directed by: Whit Stillman
Country: USA

Plot: A trio of girls set out to change the male-dominated environment of the Seven Oaks college campus.
Review: With screenplay and direction by the New Yorker Whit Stillman ("Metropolitan"), "Damsels In Distress" is centered in a group of babbler girls, who work for a College Suicide Prevention Center.  By making long and considerable stupid conversations about men, depression and suicide, these student girls tried to use smart tones as well as a confident humoristic style, without practical results. Dance and music are present too but are unable to save the movie from superficiality and inconsequent jokes. And all ends with a dance music called “Sambola”….
Relevant awards: Best actress (Dublin).
