Greta Gerwig and Adam Brody to Close Venice Film Fest with Damsels in Distress

greta_gerwig_tmi120.jpgThough the full schedule for the Venice Film Festival comes out Thursday, we already know what will close the gondolier-friendly celebration: Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress, which concerns "young women at an East Coast university, the transfer student that joins their group and the young men they become entangled with." The comedy -- which stars Movieline heroine Greta Gerwig and Adam Brody -- premieres Sept. 10, after the awards ceremony. George Clooney's The Ides of March opens the fest on Aug. 31. [Deadline]
