Whit Stillman is the focus of a fantastic Homage taking place at the Luxembourg Cinémathèque this weekend (December 1 – 5)!
The celebratory event kicks off with a conversation on 12/1 with Whit Stillman, Signing of the new book -” Whit Stillman: Not so long ago” (Fireflies Press), and a screening of “The Last Days of Disco!
“Things are looking up!” on 12/2 when “Damsels in Distress” screens with a Q&A to follow. He will also be introducing the Fred Astaire classic “Top Hat” later that day!
And finally, on 12/5 the homage will close out with the recent classic “Love & Friendship”!
Follow the link below for more details and times for the screenings – and be sure to check out the amazing homage video!
Though Stillman didn’t like the idea of not being able to to cut and edit it. He also found rewriting after a year of putting the script down a good way to cut out the chaff. A very good interview that shows the process of writing and getting Love & Friendship made.
In our opinion, Damsels in Distress would make a really great stage musical.
