Rialto Pictures will rerelease writer-director Whit Stillman’s debut film, Metropolitan, in honor of its 25th anniversary.
In the summer of 1990, Metropolitan became an indie hit and went on to garner an Academy Award nomination (for best screenplay). It also won the Independent Spirit Award for best first feature and the New York Film Critics’ Circle Award for best new director.
The film stars Carolyn Farina, Edward Clements, Chris Eigeman, Taylor Nichols, Allison Parisi, Dylan Hundley, Isabel Gillies, Will Kempe, Bryan Leder and Elizabeth Thompson. Rialto will open the film in New York on Aug. 7 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and in Los Angeles on Aug. 14 at Laemmle’s Royal. A national rollout will continue throughout the late summer and fall.
Metropolitan chronicles a young man’s romantic misadventures while trying to fit in to New York City’s debutante society.
