The ultimate movie about the New York cult of class
Certificate: 15
Running Time: 107 mins
Retail Price: £12.99
Release Date:

The ultimate movie about the New York cult of class, Six Degrees of Separation is both a witty comedy and a biting social commentary about the separation between the "haves" and the "have-nots". Will Smith gives an impressive debut, Donald Sutherland and (the Oscar nominated) Stockard Channing are both outstanding in this true story.

Posing as the son of Sidney Poitier, "Paul" (Smith) deftly penetrates the world of art-dealing urbanites Ouisa and Flan Kittredge (Channing and Sutherland). But as Paul`s web of dropped names and near fame begins to unravel, he provides his hosts with much more than just the ultimate cocktail party anecdote - he sets in motion a series of events that will alter the course of their lives forever. John Guare adapts his own stage play and Fred Schepisi`s direction is wonderfully fluid.
