Each film in the trilogy explores some central concept: if Metropolitan is about virtue, then Barcelona is about beauty, and The Last Days of Disco about social life as a kind of performance. It’s harder to say what Damsels in Distress is about, it being so odd and so various. In it, some of the characters are taking a class on “Dandy Literature” – Peacock, Pater, Wilde, Firbank and Waugh. Like these writers, Stillman does one thing and does it supremely well. He makes Whit Stillman films. It’s impossible to imagine him making some other kind of work – a historical romance on the House of Saxe-Coburg for example, or an episode of Homicide: Life on the Street.
