Things are looking up in 2024! The year is starting off with a fabulous new five-part podcast series from Tom Knoblauch’s “The Entertainment” titled “I’m Not Entirely Joking” which is an in depth look at Whit Stillman’s career.
The Paris Theatre in Manhattan has unfortunately shut its doors. Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan played in NYC for 7 months and made 1/3 of its gross there (according to Whit Stillman’s interview on The Official Podcast). The minute mark when he talks about the theatrical run and gross is 13:30.
Whit Stillman, Tom Bennett, & Justin Edwards were interviewed after the screening of Love & Friendship, that recently played at Curzon Soho. You can listen to it here on The Curzon Film Podcast. It’s a very enlightening listen, as you get a good sense of how the film came to be.
