Trivia

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 »

All right western comedy
17 February 2018 | by Alexander_BlanchettSee all my reviews

It was all right but nothing to write home about. Surprisingly funny at times tho. Robert Pattinson gives a solid enough performance, I did not expect that he can do comedy but in that film he did it better than the dramatic scenes that he dramatically overacted. The concept itself was good on paper but the Zellner bros failed with the execution at times. David Zellner gives a very solid performance in the film, possibly the best of the film. Mia Wasikowska was also fine but there were scenes she overacted as well. The soundtrack was pretty good and I liked the general look of the film, not only the cinematography but also the production design was good, although the film apparently had a limited budget. Its still nothing I would desire to watch again any time soon as it did not do anything inspiring (except maybe the narrative, which was at times a bit unexpected) . It had also some cute moments.
