    Highbrow campus-comedy from long-lost Whit Stillman is a flawed but frequently hilarious comeback. show more

    How much you enjoy Damsels will depend on your tolerance for Stillman's particular brand of duct-taped Sperry Topsider whimsy. It's a comedy! It's a musical! It's a trip down memory lane to revisit the blissful confusion of our - or someone's - college years! show more
