Product Overview

One of the most the most significant achievements of the American independent film movement of the 1990s, writer-director Whit Stillman's debut, Metropolitan, is a sparkling comedic chronicle of a middle-class young man's romantic misadventures among New York City's debutante society. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Stillman's deft, literate script and hilariously high-brow observations mask a tender tale of adolescent anxiety.

Reviews
ReviewSource Washington Post
Review There is something tragic and tender between the lines of this otherwise not exactly hysterical comedy. Stillman certainly has captured a world we don't see too often. It's also nicely ironic that this movie about the highfalutin was done on a shoestring -- the characters are often seen walking out of the Plaza Hotel, but are never filmed inside it.But in his microcosmic zeal to identify this world, Stillman leaves Metropolitan a one-joke movie. Rather than transcend his narrow frame of reference, Stillman keeps his characters doing little more than exchanging witty repartee. Tom's dramatic "invasion," which results in a tritely drawn boy-meets-girl combination, does little to stir things up for the movie. Stillman's social backdrop becomes the main attraction -- by default.

Rita Kempley, Washington Post Like chamber music, Metropolitan is sprightly, intimate... a smart comedy of conversation.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times A film Scott Fitzgerald might have been comfortable with... wonderful dialogue!
Stephen Holden, NY Times Chosen for inclusion in NY Times Critics compilation book called "One of the Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made
