A trio of girls set out to change the male-dominated environment of the Seven Oaks college campus, and to rescue their fellow students from depression, grunge and low standards of every kind.

Been a while since Whit Stillman has done something, and this could only be a good thing for Greta Gurwig.

I'm game. Never heard of the director but the trailer's got my interest.

Saw this film this morning. My first Stillman film and I am not sure why I hadn't checked them out before. Completely bizarre writing, but the odd dialogue works really naturally in this film (and Greta Gerwig in particular delivers everything really well). Hilarious and recommended.

I like quirk, but I could only sit through half of this movie.

I saw this theatrically and disliked it. Everyone but the guy who never learned the colors takes it far too seriously, and as a result, his small part is perhaps the most entertaining bit of the film. I did laugh at a couple scraps of dialogue ("Talks?" and "I miss my American friend." are the only two that stood out), but it just isn't much fun overall, and it stumbles to an incredibly lame conclusion.

For the record, I rather enjoyed Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco.
