Damsels in Distress

JOY REVIEW

Damsels in Distress is kind of a cute movie that starts out beautifully with the idea that girls, at what was previously a men’s college, are trying to make it a little less testosterone laden. It stars Greta Gerwig as Violet who’s the head of a posse, and Lily, played by Analeigh Tipton, joins as a transfer student and it follows the relationship they have with various boys. It starts off cute, funny and kind of silly, and then deteriorates into I’m not sure what. So, I give it credit for some wise dialogue, cute acting, and an interesting idea, it just doesn’t know quite where to go and ends up with dance sequences, hmmm. Two and a half stars.
