From the vaults of NOW Magazine there is a great article by Cameron Bailey about Whit Stillman’s first film, Metropolitan.
The article touches on Stillman’s work before being a filmmaker:
Freelances as journalist with Harper’s, Wall Street Journal and Village Voice
The time period of the film:
“It’s set in the recent past, although I don’t specify a time, but at heart it’s the late 60s.”
“We worked hard to keep the editing very quick, very fast, and to keep the film light and fun.”
