METROPOLITAN, 1990, Rialto Pictures, 98 min. Writer-director Whit Stillman earned an Oscar nomination for his debut feature, this perceptive comedy of manners set in 1970s Manhattan. While on winter break from his university, Tom Townsend (Edward Clements) meets a group of young socialites at a debutante ball and is accepted into their circle, spending evenings at after-hours parties hashing through socialist political theories, romantic gossip and concerns about the impending demise of the aristocracy to which all but Tom were born. Discussion following with director Whit Stillman.
