Vanity Fair Reunion Photo of ‘Metropolitan’

The cast of Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan were photographed for Vanity Fair by Jonathan Becker for the films 25th anniversary.  Mark Rozzo wrote about the reunion for Vanity Fair.

“People treated it like a documentary, with real people,” says Stillman, an eternal prepster at 63. But that sprawling ensemble cast in their gowns and tuxes were, in fact, a talented bunch of young actors channeling the “urban haute bourgeoisie”—or “U.H.B.’s,” in the movie’s parlance—with razor precision. On the rare occasion of a cast get-together, they slip right back into the rapport that made the shoot so successful. “It’s like a family reunion,” says Carolyn Farina, who played the dewy bookworm Audrey Rouget.

  1. I love the reunion photo. It’s so good to see the cast together again. I really wish Metropolitan was playing in Chicago. I’d be first in line to see it.

  2. Hi Don, You are in luck. At the 13:10 mark on the AOL Build interview Stillman says, “Then, they already have dates for Chicago”. It seems pretty certain from the way he said it.

  3. The reunion photo is a real treat. I mistook Allison Rutledge-Parisi for Carolyn Farina initially.

  4. Eric, thanks for the information. I’ll keep an eye out for when it’s playing here. The only cast member I didn’t recognize at first was Ellia Thompson. The cast looks so good together, I love to see a Metropolitan 25 years later movie. To see how life turn out for the characters and hopefully they weren’t “doomed to fail”.
