With a string of modest indie hits in the 90s (Metropolitan, Last Days of Disco) Whit Stillman is still getting his groove back after the rocky aughts. He talks to us about what happened there and his new Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship.
Now that TIFF has ended, our DVD reporters can finally start sifting through their piles of DVDs with looks this week at Cabin in the Woods, Beyond the Black Rainbow, Snow White and the Huntsman, Safe, Piranha DD, The Samaritan, Damsels in Distress, and We Have a Pope.

Dork Shelf talks to Damsels in Distress director Whit Stillman about how films have changed during his lengthy absence from behind the camera, his casting process, and the rise of fratboy cinema.
