 Metropolitan (1990) on IMDb

Stillman’s Oscar nominated low budget comedy of manners concerns the lives of a group of wealthy young socialites during debutante season in Manhattan. In addition to some of their debutante parties, it covers their frequent informal after-hours gatherings at a friend’s Upper East Side apartment, where they discuss life, philosophy, and their fate. They form attachments, romances, and intrigues and react to a radical but less well-to-do newcomer. An ironically comic look at the lives of New York preppies that is recognised as one of the most significant achievements of American independent film of the 1990s.
