Highly overlooked, accomplished work of comedy and subtlety!!!
Sudden Manhattan reflects a great love of the subtle moments in life. There are no "stock" characters within this film, each subject has their own individual quirks and fetishes, and fulfills the "Lattice of Coincidence" that becomes the plot for this movie. The movie is highly entertaining and a great departure from the predictable, and boring block-busters. This film is genuine and lacks the pretense of would-be "Artsy" independent films to which we are often subjected. Adrienne Shelley (the film's writer/director/lead) has a sly sense of humor, and her love of New York and "real conversation" is palpable and hilarious. Here is a talent who finds the art in real life. Worthy of eleven, if not one hundred, stars.
