For the girls at Seven Oaks, most life's problems can be solved by dancing, good hygiene and even proper perfume. Sound odd? Well, welcome to the arch, hilarious world of Whit Stillman and his latest, "Damels In Distress."

For the girls at Seven Oaks, most life's problems can be solved by dancing, good hygiene and even proper perfume. Sound odd? Well, welcome to the arch, hilarious world of Whit Stillman and his latest, "Damels In Distress."

No, this isn't a broadly appealing, R-rated riff like "21 Jump Street," but for those looking for something a little witty, a bit out there and definitely unique, the latest from the long absent filmmaker will fit the bill. Greta Gerwig, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Carrie MacLemore, star as a quartet of girls who try to impact the lives of women -- in their own strange and oddball way -- on the campus of the their prep school, but find boys, sex and romance getting in the way. It's all very droll, but very fun too, though you have to be willing to submit to Stillman's approach which admittedly isn't for everybody.

A batch of new images has arrived, giving a further peek into the stylized world of the movie, and if you like what you see, the movie hits on April 6th. [AllMoviePhoto]
