In an apartment on Manhattan a couple of friends from the New York upper-class meet almost every night to talk about social mobility, play bridge and discuss Fourier's socialism; the cynic Nick, the philosophical Charlie, party girl Sally and austenite Audrey. They are joined by Tom. His background is much simpler and he is critical of their way of life. But he finds a soul mate in Audrey, who without his knowledge falls in love with him. Written by
This was the last film for most of the cast. Only three or four of the cast went on to have careers as actors. See more »
You can't listen to what your younger brother has to say. I can't think of anyone less an authority of female anatomy.
He can see... It's hideous.
No, it isn't. You're being very subjective. You know, there was a survey of girls your age some years ago and nearly all of them were convinced that either their behinds, or their noses, were grotesquely oversized. And there was no apparent correlation between this conviction and their actual size.
Really? They did a survey of that?

One of the best independant films of the 90s......
After reviewing some of the comments written by other contributors I felt I needed to clarify some issues raised.
This was an independently produced film made with relatively unknown actors and a limited budget.
That being said, the writing is a cut above most films put out to the public and the art direction (utilizing real apartments and settings) captures nicely the buffered world of New York City's Upper East Side.
The acting style though it may appear to be arch and affected actually captures quite well the voice patterns and intonations of those people it portrays.
The film is truly a small gem. The audience gets a glimpse into the lives of a privileged set of college aged "preppy" Manhattan-ites. Lots of fun music helps keep the scenes jaunty and most of the actors are well cast.
The film while intellectual in bent, plays most of the scenes decidedly tongue in cheek which keeps the movie from feeling pretentious.
The movie is a baby Hannah and Her Sisters if you will. I also enjoyed the director/writer's two other films to date, Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco.
