Slaves Of New York

Bernadette Peters stars in this iconic comedy based on Tama Janowitz's best-selling collection of short stories that defined the downtown New York art scene of the 1980s.

Eleanore is an aspiring hat designer who lives with her successful but abusive artist boyfriend. The high cost of rent makes Eleanore and most of her fellow loft dwellers slaves to their relationships. If only they could afford to move they could move one.

This atypical Merchant Ivory film was made during the company's most creative and acclaimed period of filmmaking and continues their tradition of stunning photography, sets and costumes. The film's climactic fashion show was hailed by The New York Times as the greatest ever put on film. Also starring Chris Sarandon, Mary Beth Hurt, Mercedes Ruehl, Steve Buscemi, and Anthony LaPaglia, Slaves of New York captures the essence of living and loving in New York that would later become immortalized in "Sex and the City."
