As an historical record, the recently restored 1959 film Come Back, Africa is stunning. Secretly made to reflect the truth about South Africa’s apartheid, it follows black African Zachariah. Compelled by famine and recruited from his Zululand home by unscrupulous men, he becomes enmeshed in the racist system pervasive throughout South Africa.

The Belgian/French film called The Fairy takes its name literally. A magical woman named Fiona enchants night-shift hotel clerk Dom whom she grants three wishes. Not too imaginative, Dom asks for a motor scooter, petrol for a lifetime and—he can’t decide what else he could possibly want before Fiona disappears. He must find her.

In Metropolitan, Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco, writer/director Whit Stillman illustrated his offbeat approach to familiar topics. True to his fresh, humorous perspective, Stillman’s new film Damsels in Distress follows four young women at fictitious Seven Oaks University through the trials and tribulations of this quartet of proper, patronizing do-gooders.
