Magnolia at the Modern
Apr 29, 2012

"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
