  • Evan Schafer's rating of the film Chronically Metropolitan

    This is, by all definitions, a "New York" film. The vibe screams Manhattan, but it's an element that works to the advantage of the grandly dysfunctional cast. I sense that people who have not grown up in such a family environment will not understand the subtleties of the humor, but I got every little sarcastic flair and even the more somber moments. It will either move you or it won't, but you'll quickly see why.
