Plot Summary
Summary Tom's a quiet, down-to-earth college student who usually keeps to himself. But when he's recruited by a group of debutantes (a wealthy clique short on male escorts for Yuletide season pageants) he winds up a regular deb date. Before long, Tom's tight with this haughty crew and finds himself fascinated by their erudite conversations, posh lifestyle and impeccable taste.
Reviews
Rolling Stone "...This just about perfect little picture...is a triumphant anomaly: a rude comedy of manners..." 07/12/1990 p.42
USA Today "...Stillman has a disarming ace....[METROPOLITAN] engrosses and charms..." -- 3 out of 4 stars 08/17/1990 p.4D
New York Times "...A comedy of manners of a very high order....The actors are a uniformly engaging lot..." 03/23/1990 p.C18
Los Angeles Times "...Stillman's gift for quiet, scrupulous observation grows on you....Stillman is a pointillist, working in the tiniest, most meticulous degrees..." 08/10/1990 p.F10
Entertainment Weekly "[T]his witty yet wistful dream of a film smartly zeroes in on the universal desire to belong." -- Grade: A- 02/17/2006 p.61-63
Sight and Sound "Very well-written, affecting and often funny....With an almost sociological eye, Stillman explores the world of Manhattan's preppie debutantes and their escorts." 09/01/2006 p.89
