DAMSEL

The Wild West, circa 1870. An affluent pioneer, Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson) ventures deep into the American wilderness to reunite with and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). For his journey he brings Butterscotch, a miniature horse intended as a wedding present for his bride, and enlists drunkard Parson Henry (David Zellner) to conduct the ceremony. As they traverse the lawless frontier, their once simple journey grows treacherous, and the lines between hero, villain and damsel are blurred. A loving take on the Western genre from the Zellner brothers (KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER), DAMSEL showcases the duo’s trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor and unique brand of humanism.

“Pattinson has now pulled a 180 with a hilariously oddball performance in the Western comedy DAMSEL, whose title belies the formidable woman (Mia Wasikowska) at its center... It takes a bit to get accustomed to the Zellners’ style—but once you do, boy, does DAMSEL really blossom.” —Sara Stewart, New York Post

“A goof on the genre in which no trope is left unmolested and nothing goes the way it’s supposed to.” —David Edelstein, Vulture
