Greta Gerwig and Adam Brody in First 'Damsels in Distress' Trailer
After becoming a mumblecore darling, the lovely Greta Gerwig (right) has since broken into mainstream cinema with No Strings Attached and Arthur, not to mention a forthcoming role in Woody Allen's next film Nero Fiddled. Now she leads the new film Damsels in Distress, the story of three girls who set out to change the male-dominated environment of the Seven Oaks college campus, and to rescue their fellow students from depression, grunge and low standards of every kind. It doesn't look like the best film, but it's not without a few charms here and there. Basically Gerwig makes it worth a moment of your time. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress via Yahoo! Movies:
Whit Stillman wrote and directed this film about a trio of beautiful girls, the dynamic leader Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sexy Heather (Carrie MacLemore) who set out to revolutionize life at a grungy American university. Adam Brody (Cop Out) and Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love) also star in the film which Sony Pictures Classics is bringing to theaters on April 6th, 2012.
