Damsels In Distress
HitFix Critics' Reviews
B+Whit Stillman has been away from movies for so long you may not even remember he was gone. But thanks to “Damsels in Distress,” you’ll notice he’s back. Stillman built a devoted indie following in the ‘90s with the crackling dialogue and sophisticated wit of his “yuppie trilogy”: 1990’s “Metropolitan” (Oscar nominated for best original screenplay), 1994’s “Barcelona” and 1998’s “The Last Days of Disco.” These “comedies of manners” explored the romantic neuroses of WASPy friends from solid socioeconomic backgrounds.
