Chloë Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale are great and the dialogue sparkles but I’m not convinced that Stillman knows his characters are yuppie assholes. To wit:
It’s a problem, of course, because I think racism is not acceptable, but having class prejudice, people can pay themselves on the back for. It’s reverse class prejudice. Millions of people have been killed for being bourgeois. Should there be consciousness about that? How much of the hatred of anti-Semitism was a class thing, because the Jews of Germany were successful economically?
None, Whit. None of it.
