The only distress I was aware of was my own. Incoherent, silly and a total bore.

Delightful Original Comedy

By ambertopaze

Damsels in Distress is a wonderful comedy. Whit Stillman's articulate dialogue is full of original and memorable lines, with some deep poetic thoughts. It is also superbly acted. It made me smile all along, and transported me in some gentle reverie. Loved the music and dance numbers.

Viewer In Distress

Watched this movie with a group of people, both men and women, ages ranging from 19 - 70, and not a single person in my party was at all entertained. The story was hard to follow and poorly written, at best. The characters were boring, the dialogue was uninteresting and I honestly thank GOD that I didn't pay for my own ticket, or else I would have felt my money would've been better spent paying someone else NOT to watch this movie. The friend who did cover my ticket charge for me, for whom I feel terrible for spending money on this movie, did nothing but apologize to me, and everyone else, repeatedly for choosing the movie in the first place. So, from one movie lover to another, if you enjoy movies like The Avengers, Back to the Future, Lion King, The Three Stooges, Driving Miss Daisy, Taken, Friday the 13th, We are Marshall, or any other movie that has left you in any way satisfied when you left the theater, DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS WASTE OF TIME, MONEY, AND ADVERTISING SPACE.

I walked out at the risk of screaming from absolute boredom and dislike. I couldn't tolerate the characters, the dialogue of the story. I didn't care about any of them. It was awful.

Minor Stillman, Major Gerwig

Greta Gerwig is excellent in this film as a over-educated, under-experienced co-ed in Whit Stillman's latest. Unfortunately, the material is not Stillman's strongest. A bit of a let down after a 13-year absence. Definitely some funny bits, but the material is too reminiscent of Wes Anderson without the visual panache. However, still better that most of the offerings out this summer.
