A grainy 16mm source looks its best here with natural colors & deep blacks. LPCM 1.0 sound is a weak, however, all is intelligible.

|synopsis||A sparkling comedic chronicle of a middle-class young man’s romantic misadventures among New York City’s debutante society. Stillman’s deft, literate dialogue and hilariously highbrow observations earned this debut film an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Alongside the wit and sophistication, though, lies a tender tale of adolescent anxiety.|
