Writer/Director Whit Stillman’s newest film, Damsels in Distress, is soon to arrive in theaters. If you are a fan of Whit Stillman’s movies (and you should be) it is very exciting to see Stillman’s new film debut after a thirteen year hiatus. Stillman’s earlier films Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco and Barcelona constitute a marvelous trilogy well addressed in the book Doomed Bourgeois In Love.

Books on the topic of this film may be found in The Imaginative Conservative Bookstore.

imaginative conservative distressWe hope you will join us in The Imaginative Conservative community. The Imaginative Conservative is an on-line journal for those who seek the True, the Good and the Beautiful. We address culture, liberal learning, politics, political economy, literature, the arts and the American Republic in the tradition of Russell Kirk, T.S. Eliot, Edmund Burke, Irving Babbitt, Paul Elmer More, Wilhelm Roepke, Robert Nisbet, M.E. Bradford, Eric Voegelin, Christopher Dawson and other leaders of Imaginative Conservatism (Visit our Bookstore to find books by/about these men).

We address a wide variety of major issues including: What is the essence of conservatism? What was the role of faith in the American Founding? Is liberal learning still possible in the modern academy? Should conservatives and libertarians be allies? What is the proper role for the American Republic in spreading ordered liberty to other cultures/nations?
