Two by Whit Stillman

Wednesday, Apr 4 - Thursday, Apr 5, 2012

Whit Stillman’s first three films, Metropolitan, Barcelona, and The Last Days of Disco, form a sophisticated and comedic trilogy on 1990s young citydwelling bourgeois culture. His intelligent, idiosyncratic characters and almost anachronistic classicism have inspired comparisons to Woody Allen and F. Scott Fitzgerald. After a thirteen-year hiatus from feature filmmaking—during which he lived in Paris—Stillman returns with Damsels in Distress, a widely anticipated comedy centering on a group of collegiate girls.
