Contains Nudity

A multi award-winning, razor-sharp satire of class and race relations in '90s New York.

Adapted into the 1993 feature film starring Will Smith, this astounding story based on real life events depicts the lives of suave, sophisticated and wealthy Manhattan art dealers Flan and Ouisa Kittredge. The Kittredges are all about keeping up appearances but their world of comfort and respectability is turned upside down with the sudden arrival of a charming stranger.

"Fiercely intelligent, pungently funny." - Hollywood Reporter
