The ensemble comedy is an intricate web of interconnected relationships between a group of six New Yorkers, all different ages and from different socio-economic backgrounds. Inspired by the storytelling style of “La Ronde,” “Sidewalks of New York” connects each of these characters through their love lives and sexual relationships.
This $1 million budgeted pseudo-documentary had its world premiere at the 2001 Toronto International Film Festival.
