Damsels In Distress

3

An amusing whimsy about super-articulate collegians

“There’s no logic to the algebra of love!” sighs one of the damsels in Whit Stillman’s first pic since 1998’s The Last Days Of Disco, an amusing if never especially funny whimsy about super-articulate collegians who are not as bright as they think they are.

Greta Gerwig delights as the leader of four meddling femmes out to bring refinement to their male-dominated campus, with Analeigh Tipton equally ace as the new recruit who bridles at her bossiness.

Yet as enjoyable as it is to spend time in their company, the film’s hermetic, rarefied milieu may leave you gasping for air.
