“The pampered rich folk of Manhattan get skewered alive in this elegant adaptation of John Guareu0026#39;s hit play. Based on an amazing true story, the film concerns a wealthy Manhattan couple (Stockard Channing and Donald Sutherland) whose lives are turned upside down when a young black man (Will Smith) who claims to be a friend of their childrenu0026#39;s drops in after having been attacked in the park. He says heu0026#39;s Sidney Poitieru0026#39;s son, cooks up a gourmet meal, quotes u0026quot;Catcher in the Rye,u0026quot; and endears himself to this couple. As the film progresses, one stunning event after another occurs, culminating in a beautifully cathartic ending. Sutherland gives one of his best performances, but it is the luminescent Channing who steals the movie. It is so nice to see this gifted actress — looking more beautiful than ever — in the lead as opposed to playing someoneu0026#39;s best friend. Her impeccable timing and innate charm elevate an already dazzling screenplay to heights unimaginable. u0026quot;Six Degrees of Separationu0026quot; is as witty, thoughtful, and relevant as any film made the entire decade.”
