The Metropolitan is romance film about young bourgeois adults in New York that are taking a holiday break from College. Apparently the idea for the story came from Whit’s similar experience when he was on break from Harvard.

I am not used to this kind of film making and it did take me a while to stick with the film. It was an effort but at times that effort was richly rewarded with interesting little tid bits and a sense of homeliness that comes with comforting familiarity.

The film wraps up nicely in the end, which was a relief since I was beginning to worry that I would be bitterly disappointed. Upon reflection the film is kind of genius and I guess it has taken quite a while for the story to actually sink in.

Metropolitan ,like all of Whit’s films are of his style, which is a style unto itself and has to be appreciated, (if not loved), for what it is. I give this one a 6 out of 10 and hope you enjoy it. 🙂
