Critic's Pick

'Six Degrees of Separation'

July 07, 1996|Kenneth Turan

What seems to start out as a burlesque against the rich ends up mutating into something stranger and much more ambiguous. Art dealers Louisa (Stockard Channing) and Flanders Kittredge (Donald Sutherland) are East Side elites who live out their tony lives inside the galaxies of the super-rich but they're hand-to-mouth wealthy. Suddenly, they're confronted by a young black man (Will Smith, pictured) who claims to be friends with their children at Harvard. Bleeding from a stab wound he says he received from a mugging in Central Park, he goes on to reveal that he is the son of Sidney Poitier (Showtime early Monday at 3:25 a.m.).
