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.
