|Damsels in Distress Trailer - Better Therapy than Tap Dancing?|

"Tap dancing is a very effective therapy!" declares Greta Gerwig in the trailer for Whit Stillman's campus comedy, Damsels in Distress. I won't disagree. (Note: I won't disagree with anything Greta Gerwig says. Ever.)
The movie, which premiered in the UK as the London Film Festival's Surprise Film, is a so-hipster-it-hurts affair, full of doughnuts, dance sequences and Adam Brody. But when that blend of doughnuts, dance sequences and Adam Brody involves Greta Gerwig - and a very funny script - it just about works.
But watch out. If anyone asks you to watch the trailer, it's a typical playboy or operator move.
