Whit Stillman's droll, razor sharp romantic comedy set amongst the Manhattan socialite scene is a timeless, energetic reminder of the emerging independent film landscape of the late 1980s/early 1990s. As much indebted to the work of Woody Allen and Hal Hartley as filmmakers like Wes Anderson are to Stillman, METROPOLITAN's blend of biting wit, incisive social satire and deeply felt nostalgia signalled the arrival of a unique cinematic talent and a raft of invigorating young acting talent.
