Ep 369: Whit Stillman

Play

Whit Stillman returns to the podcast for an extended conversation. We met at the offices of Criterion Collection who distributes the DVDs for Metropolitan, Barcelona & The Last Days of Disco. We discuss much of Whit’s career as well as his latest work, Love & Friendship, a comedy adapted from a Jane Austen novella of the same name. Whit has also written a book called Love & Friendship: In Which Jane Austen’s Lady Susan Vernon Is Entirely Vindicated now available where books are sold. The film is now available on most digital platforms as well as on DVD & Blurry.
