Before the movie, catch an exclusive look at a movie made in Winchester called GUYS AND GIRLS CAN'T BE FRIENDS featuring  Ben Solenberger, Stephen Tobolowsky, and the legendary Clint Howard, and directed by Jaymes Camery.

DAMSELS IN DISTRESS is about a group of beautiful young women and their attempts to change the status quo at their male-dominated college campus. Starring the hilarious Greta Gerwig (THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL), who is really and rightfully taking off this year, along with Aubrey Plaza (SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED, PARKS AND RECREATION), Analeigh Tipton (CRAZY STUPID LOVE) and the great Adam Brody (JENNIFER'S BODY), DAMSELS IN DISTRESS is from the singular writer/director Whit Stillman, previously of METROPOLITAN, THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO and BARCELONA.
