WeirdHair's rating of the film Damsels in Distress

I loved the absurd situation faced by these girls in their co-ed situation. The banter is eloquent, from a time by gone and yet, how it addresses contemporary issues like depression, medication, suicide, OCD or the fact that most correspondences are now electronic, makes it relevant. Loved it when Violet/Emily cooly admits she's insane or infers to the fictional cousin Jay to give credence to her crazy.
