SYNOPSIS:
A year after having left his home in shame for publishing a story about his girlfriend's family, a promising young author returns to New York City without warning, intending to reunite with his ex-girlfriend, make peace with his estranged parents and conquer his writer's block. A big agenda that "Chronically Metropolitan" handles with razor sharp humor and irony. Shiloh Fernandez as Fenton is a charmer, and Chris Noth as his famous father is the epitome of vanity and debauchery. Meanwhile, his jilted mother (Mary-Louise Parker) is buying pot from his best friend, and his ex is set to marry a successful and pretentious art dealer. Do family bonds get repaired? Does the boy get the girl in the end? The ensemble cast is perfectly on target, making this story fun and at the same time moving and meaningful. -- Ben F. Fischer and Svetlana Krotek
