Time Out says
It’s a credit to Whitman’s gifts of characterisation that Tom is at once as infuriating and loveable as any smart, decent kid in the throes of late adolescence. So is Nick (Chris Eigeman), who’s possessed of lightning wit, bad judgment, and no end of snap opinions (‘The Surrealists were all a bunch of social climbers’). And so is Charlie (Taylor Nichols), who nurses a crush on sweet, pretty Audrey (Carolyn Farina) and frets about the ‘downward mobility’ of what he dubs the UHB, or Urban Haute Bourgeoisie. None of Stillman’s endearing characters quite fits their prescribed social context, and in its exhilarated final movement, ‘Metropolitan’ finds an exit out of the stifling UHB salon.
