Metropolitan (1990) written and directed by Whit Stillman
Edward Clements as Tom Townsend and Carolyn Farina as Audrey Rouget

Tom: You don’t have to have read a book to have an opinion on it. I haven’t read the Bible either.
Audrey: What Jane Austen novels have you read?
Tom: None. I don’t read novels. I prefer good literary criticism. That way you get both the novelist’s idea as well as the critic’s thinking.

  1. Ha! Tom has a good game plan there. This remains Stillman’s signature work.
