Whit Stillman


Whit Stillman is one of the most influential yet underrated voices in American independent cinema. A storyteller inspired by classic novelists like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Jane Austen, Stillman has a unique cinematic voice that inspired directors like Wes Anderson throughout the 1990s. It’s funny, witty and completely unlike anything else that emerged from the independent movement of the era. It continues to be exciting today – at least, on the rare occasions when he manages to get his movies financed. To celebrate the release of his first film since 2011, ‘Love & Friendship’, adapted from the novella Lady Susan by the aforementioned Austen, we are proud to celebrating the small but wonderful work of Whit Stillman as part of our latest Directors Season.
