"Irresistibly funny." –The New York Times.

"Ironic, touching and wickedly funny... It's hard to imagine a more impressive debut." –Newsday.

Whit Stillman's sparkling comedic debut earned the director multiple accolades including a Best Original Screenplay Oscar® nomination. A middle-class Manhattanite from the Upper West Side falls in with a clique of upper-class Upper East Siders during the busy debutante ball and holiday season; amid the ensuing drinking, debating and comedic class anxiety come the pangs of love, self-discovery and the first fumblings toward growing up. Starring Carolyn Farina, Edward Clements, Chris Eigeman and Taylor Nichols.

DIR/SCR/PROD Whit Stillman. US, 1990, color, 98 min, DCP. RATED PG-13
