A be-tuxed Nick Smith (Chris Eigeman) is bemused at your insouciance.
Metropolitan is possibly American cinema's greatest class farce. Told with a smirk and a glib rejoinder at every turn, Whit Stillman's (arguably) greatest film turns 20 this year. The comedy is receiving the full treatment from Cinefamily at The Silent Movie Theatre, in conjunction with Flaunt Magazine, on Sunday, January 30th at 8:00 p.m. Stephen Brower gave us a brilliant breakdown of the film in the pages of the current issue of Flaunt (read it over here), and we know he's super psyched to see Whit Stillman in person alongside longtime Stillman player Taylor Nichols (who plays the nervous wreck Charlie Black) for a Q&A. Debs and gents alike will be in ballgowns and tuxes respectively, and there'll be a martini reception courtesy of Belvedere Vodka. We warn you, though, you might walk away a Fourierist.
AS OF SATURDAY, JANUARY 29TH, THE SCREENING OF METROPOLITAN IS SOLD OUT.
