Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Director Whit Stillman sold his Manhattan apartment to raise the budget for this, his debut movie, and then borrowed the apartments of friends to shoot it in. Using a cast of unknowns, it tells the story of a group of young, privileged New Yorkers who call themselves the SFRP (Sally Fowler Rat Pack, named after a party hostess) and do little during the Christmas season other than attending debutante balls, having party postmortems, swapping bons mots and courting each other. It's as though the world of F Scott Fitzgerald has been caught in a time warp, complete with a social interloper (played by Edward Clements). Stillman's witty, sophisticated screenplay was Oscar nominated.
