Since Whit Stillman hasn’t made a movie since 1998, were any of you familiar with his work before you signed on for Damsels?

Greta Gerwig: Yes. I’d seen everything and I knew every line. I was obsessed with him. Metropolitan was the most quoted film at my college…  I was so obsessed with him to the point that the one episode of Homicide he directed I watched. It was full-on craziness.
