** Skype Q&A with the Zellner Brothers after the Jul. 14 7:30pm screening! **


“I’m goin’ West, of course!” exclaims Samuel (Robert Pattinson, a hoot), who has enlisted the help of Parson Henry (David Zellner) to save his beloved Penelope (Mia Wasikowska) so that he may propose to her, in David and Nathan Zellner’s upended Western. The journey is made, things go awry, and they encounter a slew of interesting characters – including a scene-stealing miniature horse named Butterscotch – but in the hands of the Zellner brothers, nothing is as it seems.

Ever since Kid-Thing (2012), the brothers have excelled at writing distinctive female characters who defy expectations, and Damsel marks the apex of that trend.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“Damsel manages to import any number of modern notions into a surprisingly traditional Western structure, recognizing the appeal of the genre while not being afraid to steer it into some distinctly modern channels.” – Nick Roddick, Standard UK
