Posted February 26th, 2012 09:18 PM IPI have a confession to make…I enjoy watching Whit Stillman movies. Barcelona is in my top ten list of all time favorite movies. Sure he’s pretentious, writes only about young rich white people, and his dialogue is stilted and sometimes obvious and boring…BUT, he has a great sense of deadpan humor and his movies recall the charm of the old b&w screwball comedies. I also find Greta Gerwig a great actress to watch on film. Whit’s new “Damsels in Distress” looks like it’s going to be a classic. It appears to take place in maybe the present day but the heroines of the film seem to come out of some early sixties preppy time warp. I understand there is more than one song and dance number in the film. Can’t wait to indulge.
Any other Whit Stillman fans out there? He's either someone you love or hate, that's for sure.
