Metropolitan is a small independent film where not much
happens, but is still well-made, well-written and well-acted besides this.
cash-strapped, left-wing student falls in with a group of rich Manhattan socialites who just seem intent on having cocktail parties and little else, making them realise there's more to life than
their faux friendships.
With more than a few references to the Pride & Prejudice
and other literature classics, the film feels like an ode to Jane Austen without being a modernisation of her works.
This film won't be everyone's cup of tea however, and despite
some realistic, intelligent dialogue there's very little else to recommend about it.
