Slaves of New York is a 1989 comedic drama directed by James Ivory. The film is based on a short story collection of the same name by Tama Janowitz. Deep down, Eleanor (Bernadette Peters) knows she has talent and ambition, but sometimes it can be hard for her to remember that. She designs hats and hopes to one day become a famous designer. Living in New York, it can be easy to feel lost in the crowds of equally hip and ruthless young people. To make matters worse, Eleanor's boyfriend, Stash (Adam Coleman Howard), is unsupportive and self-absorbed. Following his own dreams of becoming an artist, he often takes Eleanor for granted, but she knows that she cannot afford to live on her own. Feeling stuck and enslaved in the situation, Eleanor drifts from one group of self-indulgent New York friends to another. When she meets Wilfredo (Steve Buscemi), Eleanor might get her big break, but she needs to find the inner confidence to pull it off.moreless
