It's the Wild West, circa 1870. Samuel Alabaster, an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope. As his group traverses the west, the once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
As Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson) travels across the American Frontier, on a journey to marry the love he has always looked for, Penelope (Mia Wasikowski), life becomes more and more dangerous. Accompanied by his miniature horse, Butterscotch, and drunkard companion, Parson Henry (David Zellner), the lines between hero, villain and damsel in distress become more and more blurred in this comic reinvention of the classic western movie.Written by

Robert Pattinson first read the script, but passed it on because he thought a movie like this would never get financed because he couldn't really categorize it. A few weeks later, he randomly watched the directors previous film Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2014) at the cinema and loved it. Wanting to know who the directors were, he asked his agent about them and found out that he read the script for Damsel a few weeks earlier. See more »
This film should have been a short film and it may have been good... but it felt drawn out to its full film length .... at first the dialogue was interesting and whimsical but then became pretentious and obvious .... there were parts when the actors seemed in character with a western accent and ye olde vocabulary and there were others where they seemed to make no effort at all just throwing out modern slang and slander like dropping f bombs... it just threw you out of the movie. The twist I could see a mile off..... however all the actors felt like they just came "on set" clothing looking fresh. Some of the dialogue between the characters goes no where.... which is you feel at the end of the film .... just gone none where.
