WATCH FOR FREE: ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE GUERRILLA FILM. Right here, right now!

Yesterday I was blogging about how the distribution and exhibition world is changing... today I'm using my little internet corner as a window of exhibition, isn't that fantastic?

In 1990 Whit Stillman debuted with his film Metropolitan, it wasn't easy to distribute at all. In a recent interview for indieWIRE Stillman shows his gratitude to everybody that make the limited distribution possible.

17 years later the films it's available, for a few weeks, to everyone that has access to a computer, so, put it in your hulu queue or just hit play up here.

  • Made for a reported $250,000, starring a full cast of young unknowns, and consisting primarily of one long scene after another of rich kids sitting in a palatial Upper East Side apartment discussing Jane Austen, Charles Fourier, their mostly unfashionable morals and fears of failure, while dressed in evening clothes, Metropolitan played in theaters for seven months, eventually grossing $3 million and earning Stillman an Oscar nomination (he lost to Bruce Joel Rubin, screenwriter of Ghost).

Feature Film | PG-13 | 1:38:26
