CHRONICALLY METROPOLITAN (2016)
A great cast is completely lost in a film that just doesn't work. Part of it is the casting which just seems wrong all the way around and part of it is a script which just gives us a bunch of rich intellectual jerks who aren't worth the 80 minutes of time we spend with them.
The real problem is Fenton who is this odd duck who is more annoying than charming. I never liked him and based on the reaction he gets when he returns to the familial nest and his girl friend it's clear that the family isn't thrilled either. I suppose that its supposed to be a prodigal son returning but he's still a jerk. It doesn't help that Shiloh Fernandez plays him as an annoying Johnny Depp by having a similar hair style and mumbled delivery.
I really didn't like this film and ten minutes in I was checking the run time and trying to distract myself by doodling in my notebook.
Actually I hate this film and if you see it to you will too.(or if not hate you will regret the time lost that could have been used getting your feet scraped)
