Damsels in Distress

Saturday, January 7 at 9:30 pm

"A great movie! A vast fund of grace, wit, and humor!" —Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"Wonderful, elevating frivolity! Whit Stillman's funniest and most accessible film." —Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

Damsels in Distress follows a trio of beautiful girls who set out to revolutionize life at a grungy East Coast College – the dynamic leader Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sexy Heather (Carrie MacLemore). They welcome transfer student Lily (Tipton) into their group which seeks to help severely depressed students with a program of good hygiene and musical dance numbers. The girls become romantically entangled with a series of men -- including slick Charlie (Brody), dreamboat Xavier (Hugo Becker) and the mad frat pack of Frank (Ryan Metcalf) and Thor (Billy Magnussen)—who threaten the girls’ friendship and sanity.

The film was produced, written, and directed by Whit Stillman, who will join us in person on January 7 at 2:00 pm for a conversation following a screening of his debut feature film, Metropolitan.

After Hours is the best films you never saw on the big screen (or maybe you did) from late-night cult classics to foreign favorites and even summer blockbusters on weekends. Please note that unclaimed pre-ordered tickets will be sold to the rush line 30 mins after showtime.
