Damsels in Distress (2011)

Film details


Comedy. The romantic entanglements of a group of three female students at Seven Oaks University on the East Coast, the transfer student they take under their wing, and the men they are interested in (among them a practising Cathar and a man whose pushy parents made him skip kindergarten, leaving him unable to name any of the colours). The women busy themselves running the campus Suicide Prevention Center, planning to dispense soap to the unwashed male students and trying to create a new dance craze called the 'Sambola'.
