SIFF Film Center | Special Event
Skype Q&A with director Whit Stillman.
This Academy Award-nominated indie classic chronicles the rise and ultimate decline of a group of young Park Avenue socialites who gather nightly to discuss love, honor, and the impending demise of their class. 25 years later, Metropolitan remains as crisp, ironically comic, and socially relevant as when first released.

Partly Cloudy (with Sunny Spells)

November 13, 2015

Italy | 2015 | 95 minutes | Marco Pontecorvo

Director Marco Pontecorvo, Producer Marco Valerio Pugini scheduled to attend. This touchingly comic story of friendship at an impasse starts when two business partners (Luca Zingaretti and Pasquale Petrolo) discover oil on their property.
