Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny both were interviewed by Vanity Fair. The Beckinsale interview discusses more about the films than the Sevigny video.
It is no surprise to me that Vanity Fair chose Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan as one of the top ten films about Manhattan. Stillman’s first film (Oscar Nominated) captured things you can no longer find in Manhattan, including checker cabs and the Automat. It is a timeless film that is so rich with amazing dialogue, that it can be watched over and over. Metropolitan also played for seven months in NYC and is coming out again this August to celebrate 25 years.
Here are some Damsels interviews from the archives. They touch on a lot of things that are said in other interviews, but they’re both worth a watch.
The first is a Whit Stillman BFI interview:
Greta Gerwig talks about Damsels in Distress to Krista Smith at Vanity Fair. She discusses being a big Whit Stillman fan and how tap dancing lessons helped her secure her part:
Whit Stillman sits down with Krista Smith of Vanity Fair at the 2011 TIFF and talks about Damsels in Distress. He talks about how he got the idea for Damsels, how the funding came about, music in his film, the writing of the film, and how his experience at the Venice Film Festival was.
