From writer-director Whit Stillman, a group of young upper-class Manhattanites are blithely passing through the gala debutante season, when an unusual outsider joins them and stirs them up. Special guest appearance by Whit Stillman in conversation with former NY Times film critic Janet Maslin.
“‘Metropolitan’ is a comedy of manners of a very high order.”– Vincent Canby, New York Times
“Whit Stillman makes a strikingly original debut with ‘Metropolitan,’ a glib, ironic portrait of the vulnerable young heirs to Manhattan’s disappearing debutante scene.”– Amy Dawes, Variety
