Outstanding! You aren't a Parisian until you lived there for a couple months
1 September 2014 | by IDwasTakenSee all my reviews

Whit Stillman's THE COSMOPOLITANS is jam packed with clever dialogue, great acting, and some great awkward moments. To me it rang very true, and made me laugh a lot. The lines about the apartment having a view when there was just a sliver of one, not having a decadent affair by going hiking, and the comment about the Starbucks being next to a great building were just a few of the gems in this outstanding Pilot. There are too many great lines of dialogue and to name them all would spoil the fun.

If you have seen Stillman's DAMSELS IN DISTRESS you will get the clever reference (I do not want to give it away). I want to watch these characters develop and see where the series goes. Hopefully this series gets picked up as it is a refreshing breath of fresh air. Clever without being crude (very rare today), and shot and directed beautifully. The acting is also really great and I particularly loved Sandro character as I have met Europeans just like him. It was also great to see Chloe Sevigny in another Whit Stillman project. If you do not pay attention you will miss the slew of funny lines.
