3SMReviews: Damsels in Distress
The preview promised a movie full of quirky characters, plus Greta Gerwig and that big-eyed Analeigh Tipton* and it delivered on all counts. But I think the problem was that the quirky was turned up entirely too high and Greta Gerwig’s character was so buttoned down that even when things fell apart she didn’t have very far to go. Overall, I found it to be tedious and disappointing.
