Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan turns 25 today. The story set, “not so long ago”, premiered at Sundance, Saturday, January 20 at 4:00p.m. at the Egyptian Theater. Whit Stillman would go on to be nominated for an Academy Award for Metropolitan. It has since been preserved for the Sundance Collection at the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Metropolitan also has the rare and prestigious honor of being a relatively “young” film to have been chosen by Criterion and by TCM. Please take a listen to The Official Podcast, which has interviews with Stillman, Chris Eigeman and Taylor Nichols (Jordan Rountree of The Cosmopolitans has also been interviewed) and take a look at the videos below.
