Atlantic: Why the World Still Needs Whit Stillman

The Atlantic has an article by John Hendel about why Stillman’s films are worth watching and why Damsels in Distress will be worth the wait:

Stillman is his own filmmaker, and Damsels in Distress marks the return of a significant voice to American movies. What form Damsels will take remains to be seen, but actors Adam Brody and Greta Gerwig are ideal choices for vocalizing the talky, neurotic personalities of a Stillman flick. And who knows – maybe we won’t have to wait another decade for the next. In interviews, the director has alluded to penning various scripts throughout recent years. Perhaps an urban haute bourgeoisie revolution is on the way … perhaps even a resurrection of prep? The ball, Mr. Stillman, is in your court.
