Having been a New Yorker of a similar social class and era depicted, there was a lot of nostalgia associated with viewing this film. Beyond this I recognized--at least in my mind--all the characters, who I felt were true to themselves and human nature. Aside from my own reasons for liking the film, it is hard to imagine a better treatment of a particular emerging generation. It should have universal appeal.
