Richard Brody of The New Yorker picks Whit Stillman’s Damsels in Distress as the “Movie of the Week.”
Be sure to click on the video in the article as well, to hear Brody talk more about Damsels in Distress.
Greta Gerwig, who played the lead in Whit Stillman’s Damsels in Distress comes out with another amazing performance in Mistress America. Gerwig also co wrote the screenplay with Noah Baumbach. Richard Brody at The New Yorker has this to say about Gerwig’s latest outing.
Baumbach fills his cast with actors who are deft talkers, starting with Gerwig, whose mercurial delivery of the dialogue should be no surprise after her performance in Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress,” which channels Katharine Hepburn’s linguistic acrobatics.
Richard Brody at the The New Yorker has picked Whit Stillman’s Barcelona for the movie of the week.
And that’s why “Barcelona” is a comedy, and why the romance that drives it is so subtle and so complex. Stillman’s current project is a pilot for a Web series set, once more, among American expatriates, this time in Paris; it’s called “The Cosmopolitans,” and I’m jumping out of my skin with impatience to see it.
