For these girls... it's not what you learn, it's whom you educate.
A trio of beautiful girls set out to revolutionize life at a grungy American university: the dynamic leader Violet Wister, principled Rose and sexy Heather. They welcome transfer student Lily into their group which seeks to help severely depressed students with a program of good hygiene and musical dance numbers.

Big. Fat. WTF. Explosive diarrhea is preferable to this. #myeyeballshurt #durrrrrrrrrrrrr

Whit, no offense to you, but I don't think I'm smart enough for your films.

Whit Stilman is alive!

Stilman's first movie since "The Last Days of Disco", Damsels is a pleasant return to form, but at first glance it takes a while to get what his doing. At times, this movie appears to be too clever for its own good, passing straight over the heads of its audience. It requires concentration. Do not be deceived by the trailer - this is not your average dumb college comedy. It's clever, quirky, infuriatingly self aware, ultimately flawed in its execution, but repeated viewing will reveal hidden depths.
