It's the age of 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.

  • 5 stars "Quirky western with an updated slant. Robert Pattinson transformed himself in Good time, and he should have won an Oscar. In Damsel he transforms himself again with another amazing performance , and Mia Wasikowska is not a damsel and kills it lol. It's smart and surprising. Do we have a Damsel II?"
  • 5 stars "Quirky western with unexpected twists. It stepped away from the traditional and stereotypical westerns. It was laugh out loud funny in a couple of scenes and full of humor throughout; although there were some dark scenes, dealing with love and obsession and the crazy things people do for love. The same things happen today, so it was interesting to see those things happening in the old West. I don't want to give too much away, but if you like offbeat humor and westerns you will like this."
