Whit Stillman Rescues Some “Damsels”

Indie filmmaker Whit Stillman (“The Last Days of Disco,” “Metropolitan”) looks to be finally returning after a decade-plus absence with “Damsels In Distress” (aka. “Diorissimo”) for Westerly Films reports The Playlist.

The story follows a dynamic group of college girls who take in a new student and teach her their own misguided ways of helping people which are used as a coping mechanism for their various failed college romances.

A five-week shoot kicks off mid-July in New York City. Stillman himself has spent much of the past decade trying to get several projects going including a spiritual Jamaican music film called “Dancing Mood”, and an adaptation of Christopher Buckley’s “Little Green Men” which he eventually abandoned.
