Description

Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson), an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American Frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.

A loving reinvention of the western genre from the Zellner brothers (“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter”), “Damsel” showcases their trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor, and unique brand of humanism.

“Manages to achieve the rare distinction of being both ambitious and just so much fun!” — Dana Schwartz, Entertainment Weekly

“Turns the classic western into something wackily eccentric and entertainingly original.” — Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“Mia Wasikowska’s performance as Penelope is arresting.” — Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“Boy, does ‘Damsel’ really blossom. Pattinson gives a hilariously oddball performance.” — Sara Steward, New York Post
