About the film:
Seven Oaks is an East Coast college with beautiful Greek Revival architecture and a boorish male student population. Decades after coeducation’s arrival the male atmosphere still prevails. A dynamic trio of girls -- group leader Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sexy Heather (Carrie MacLemore) -- decide to change all that, setting out to rescue their fellow students from depression, grunge and low standards of every kind.

At New Student Orientation the trio spots lost-looking Lily (Analeigh Tipton) and takes her under wing. Meanwhile the girls become romantically entangled with a series of men -- including slick Charlie (Brody), dreamboat Xavier (Becker) and the mad frat pack of Frank (Metcalf) and Thor (Magnussen) -- who threaten their friendship and sanity.
Rated PG-13 for mature thematic content including some sexual material.
