Scenes That I Love: Nick Confronts Rick Von Slonecker in Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan


The Shattered Lens wishes a happy birthday to director Whit Stillman!

Today’s scene that I love comes from Stillman’s first film, 1990’s Metropolitan.  In this scene of preppie-on-preppie violence, Nick (Chris Eigeman) confronts the loathsome aristocrat Rick Von Slonecker (Will Kempe).  Upper class fisticuffs follow.  Chris Eigeman is about as perfectly cast as any actor ever has been in the role of Nick.

  1. What a fantastic film…my wife and I also really like “Barcelona”…we own all of his films, and enjoyed the most recent “Damsels In Distress” as well, but “Metropolitan” is the cream of the crop to be sure!
