DVD/Blu-ray: Damsels in Distress (12)

Walt Stillman DVD/ Blu-ray (99mins)

"My view, handsome guys are to be avoided," claims Greta Gerwig's haughty Violet in this droll campus comedy. Before Wes Anderson, there was Whit Stillman chronicling the verbose lives of the well-heeled, and this unique American voice returns after a 13-year absence. Violet leads a trio of lofty students who operate the university's Suicide Prevention Centre and take Analeigh Tipton's smart newbie under their wing. Lucid, distinctive and quite often very funny.
