Parking can be scarce, so arrive early and if possible go on Sunday. The meters don't have to be fed.

Description

Ouisa Kittredge read somewhere that “everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people.” When Paul, a young victim of a knife attack, seeks assistance at her family’s upper-class New York home, she discovers how true that statement really is. Claiming to be Sidney’s Poitier’s son, Paul connects to Ouisa and her husband Flan in a way not even their own children have. But Paul may not be all he says he is, and his aggressive, far-reaching search for meaningful human contact creates a web of confusion and pain that – as Ouisa discovers – didn’t start, nor end, within her family’s walls. A comic-tragedy loosely based on a true story, “Six Degrees of Separation,” like a revolving Kandinsky, paints multiple sides on what drives and motivates us in the glare of money, greed, fame, lust and, finally, each other.
