Cinemactik's rating of the film Damsels in Distress

With DAMSELS, Stillman moves closer into the present than ever before, but retains a timeless innocence with his camera, environment, and actors. Gerwig is more than just Stillman trading in Chloe Sevigny for the latest model, in Gerwig's Violet, Stillman has found the perfect combination of DISCO's acerbic Charlotte and naive Alice rolled together into an obsessive/compulsive optimist with delusions of humanity.
