Trailer Debut: Damsels in Distress

It’s been 13 years since writer-director Whit Stillman‘s last film, and the trailer for his newie Damsels in Distress has only reminded us of how much we’ve missed him.

The man behind The Last Days of Disco and the sublime, Oscar nominated Metropolitan returns with a comic look a sorority life in the U.S. The always-excellent Greta Gerwig stars as the leader of a refined East Coast university clique who welcomes an uncouth newcomer (Crazy Stupid Loves Analeigh Tipton).

Check out the trailer and share your thoughts below (courtesy of Yahoo).


Damsels in Distress made our list of honourable mentions for the most exciting films of 2012. Consider our anticipation heightened further. It does not yet have an Australian release date.

Discuss: If Metropolitan planted the seeds for Gossip Girl, can we hope Damsels in Distress will similarly inspire an addictive, trashier TV spin-off in the years to come?
