  • Oscar-nominated filmmaker Whit Stillman (THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO) returns to the director's chair for the first time in 13 years with this comedy set at an East Coast university and centering on the trials of four female undergrads who seek to make life better for the entire student body. Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig) is a natural-born leader. Together with the help of her conscientious friend Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and their gorgeous pal Heather (Carrie MacLemore), Violet uses aroma and musical therapy to help her possibly suicidal classmates. When newly arrived transfer student Lily (Analeigh Tipton) seeks admission into their social circle, she's welcomed with open arms. While Lily appreciates having a group to be a part of, she soon realizes that Violet may not be a flawless friend.

  • Critic Reviews
    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "This is the world as Stillman sees it, and to luxuriate for two hours in that retro bubble of sparkling wit is a pleasure not to be missed."
    Rolling Stone

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Stillman writes his own dialogue, and is a master of clever double-reverse wit."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Gerwig and Echikunwoke deploy weapons-grade poker faces..."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Stillman's knack for subtle, acerbic humour and characters tarnished by their own flawed idiocy is still intact....He's still got a wicked way with words..."
    Total Film

    "The vibe is idiosyncratic, digressive; the script zips along like a Howard Hawks screwball comedy. As high school comedies go, it's up there with HEATHERS and CLUELESS."
