Movie Info

Rittenhouse Square is a public park in Philadelphia located not far from the campus of the Curtis Institute of Music, and while the square has had a long and checkered history, these days locals know it as a place to relax, enjoy the day, and sometimes hear music students show off their talents. It's also a hangout for the city's homeless population, many of whom enjoy the passing parade of beautiful women who visit the park to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine in the city. Legendary independent filmmaker Robert Downey Sr. turns his cameras on Rittenhouse Square in this documentary, which offers a taste of the park's unique flavor, preserves the sights and sounds of the artists who regularly visit the square, interviews the many interesting characters who can be found there on a given day, and marvels at the passing parade of lovely women.more

Robert Downey Sr.'s terrific Ritten house Square made me want to move to Philadelphia. Thankfully, the feeling quickly passed.

There are certainly more unpleasant ways to spend an hour and a half, but it's unlikely that Rittenhouse Square will generate much interest outside Philadelphia.

A good stroll inside your nearest city park would provide a more edifying experience.
