We all have two lives: the one we are born with, and the one we try and create for ourselves. Will Smith makes his compelling dramatic debut as Paul, a man who shows up at the doorstep of two affluent art dealers, claiming to need help after a Central Park mugging. Presenting himself as a Harvard Man, a friend of their children and the son of Sidney Poitier, he charms the couple with stories of his father and ends up staying the night. In the morning, however, we find out that “Paul” is a conman, and his ruse will have repercussions that will change one family in ways they never imagined. “Hilarious! Touching! Magic!” Rolling Stone

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Though it betrays its theatrical roots, Six Degrees of Separation largely succeeds thanks to astute direction and fine performances -- particularly from an against-type Will Smith.
