Directed by Robert M. Young | 1979

With Trini Alvarado, Jeremy Levy, John Lithgow

In this unsung slice of 1970s New Yorkiana, produced by Robert Altman, an astute pre-teen (Alvarado) deals with the fallout of her well-heeled Upper West Side parents’ divorce—an experience that draws her to a precocious boy (Levy) whose parents have also separated. This urbane comedy satirically depicts upper-crusty Manhattan and was cited by Perry as an influence on Listen Up Philip.

Alex Ross Perry: "The dated sense of timelessness in this film was very interesting to study, to think about the homes of the people who would go see a film like Husbands and Wives and allow it to destroy their marriage. Somehow at once both unsentimental and touching, cutesy and unflinching, Rich Kids is a real curiosity, and a film that deserves to be more widely known. There is a canopy on an apartment building somewhere in this film that implies the building is called 'Tyrannosaurus' which to me shows either real vision or a New York surely more fascinating than the one we currently live in."
