Man, I haven’t seen Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan in forever — since long before I started reviewing — but I remember liking it a lot. I haven’t see his other films (The Last Days of Disco; Barcelona) at all. Maybe I need to do a Stillman catchup before I see this new one.
I am going to remain optimistic here and presume that the “men are fixer-uppers” theme is satirical. Because it had better be.
Greta Gerwig and Aubrey Plaza are basically always awesome. So that’s something to look forward to.
