DAMSEL

Watch Trailer Director: David Zellner, Nathan Zellner
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, David Zellner

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.

Damsel is a sly feminist manifesto disguised as a shaggy, amiable hangout movie.
