‘Damsels in Distress’ is on Netflix UK Streaming

Twitter user @vickytnz stated a while back that Whit Stillman’s Damsels in Distress was on Netflix instant watch.  I checked and it seems to be the case.  Bring yourself out of a tailspin and learn to do The Sambola! by checking it out.  Both Adam Brody and Carrie MacLemore of the upcoming The Cosmopolitans star in Damsels in Distress.

Paste Magazine Picks The 100 Best Movies on Netflix Instant

Josh Jackson at Paste Magazine picks “The 100 Best Movies on Netflix Instant.”  Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan is listed at number 53.

Christmas Metropolitan

Year: 1990
Director: Whit Stillman
There have been nearly as many “next Woody Allens” in film as there have been “next Michael Jordans” in basketball or “next Bob Dylans” in music, but sometimes the moniker fits. In Whit Stillman’s debut, he staked his claim as the Woody of the upper-class WASPy NYC set and won a whole army of loyal followers. For good reason, too—seldom has any director, regardless of experience, so deftly juggled dialogue that could so easily have delved into too-clever-by-half-isms, or trained such a sympathetic eye on a sometimes questionable nostalgia for the end of an age. Most of all, though, seeing Metropolitan just makes you feel smart and witty and somehow elevated. Not bad for the price of a movie ticket.—Michael Dunaway
