In The Oranges, Adam Brody and Alia Shawkat play siblings whose parents’ marriage has hit a rough patch after their father (Hugh Laurie) cheats on their mother (Catherine Keener) with the neighbors’ (Oliver Platt and Allison Janney) daughter (Leighton Meester).
Whit Stillman and Greta Gerwig have come together to collaborate on Stillman’s first film in 13 years. Damsels in Distress is an indie rom-com about a group of girls who aim to transform the social etiquette of potentially suicidal girls and the frat boys that they’re attracted to at a fictional Ivy League school.
When writer/director Whit Stillman wrote the screenplay for his latest film, Damsels in Distress, he drew inspiration from his days as a college student at (maybe you've heard of it) Harvard University.
One of the most admired independent film directors, Whit Stillman is known for imbedding philosophical discussions in his films, which include Metropolitan, Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco, as well as the recently released Damsels in Distress, starring Adam Brody.
