Independent filmmaker Mark Rappaport paints a wicked picture of the New York Yuppie scene in Chain Letters. The story involves nine upwardly mobile Manhattanites, all of whom receive a chain letter. Depending on their decision to either pass the letter on or to break the chain, the various characters encounter romance, fulfillment--and sudden death. Mark Arnott, Reed Birney, David Brisbin and Randy Danson are the four letter recipients whom we're supposed to care about most. Director Rappaport also handled writing and coproducing chores on Chain Letters.
