Rialto Pictures will re-release indie stalwart Whit Stillman’s debut film, “Metropolitan,” in honor of the movie’s 25th anniversary.

Metropolitan” will open Aug. 7 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City, followed by a launch in Los Angeles seven days later and a national rollout throughout the late summer and fall.

The 1990 film centers on upper-class New Yorkers on winter break from college during debutante ball season. Carolyn Farina, Edward Clements and Chris Eigeman are among the stars.

Stillman’s screenplay received an Oscar nomination, and the film had a solid box office performance, grossing nearly $3 million domestically.

Stillman is in post-production on “Love & Friendship” — an adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella “Lady Susan” — which reteams his “Last Days of Disco” stars Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny.
