‘Metropolitan’ Premiered at Sundance 25 Years Ago

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.
