Today sees the release of Whit Stillman’s first film in 14 years, Damsels in Distress. In honor of the writer-director’s return, we’re presenting another special installment of the Brow Beat feature Classic Cinema in 3 GIFs, in which we attempt to encapsulate classic films in three animated GIFs. This week: Metropolitan, Stillman’s charming 1990 debut.

In the comments, let us know which three GIFs you would have selected, and nominate the film we should take on next.
