entertainment value
An enjoyable character study, though a bit stuffy. Wri/Dir Stillman does a great balancing act with the films highbrow Drama and Comedy.
genre Comedy | Drama
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.
