A middle-aged artist obsessed with his pretty young assistant, a precocious 12 year old living in a hotel, and a neurotic lawyer with a possessive mother make up three Gotham tales.
According to film critic Leonard Maltin, Francis Ford Coppola's segment "Life Without Zoë" was a "variation on the old children's book Eloise". According to Wikipedia, "Eloise is a series of children's books written in the 1950s by Kay Thompson (1909-1998) and illustrated by Hilary Knight (b. 1926). Thompson and Knight followed up Eloise (1955) with four sequels. Eloise is a six-year-old girl who lives in the "room on the tippy-top floor" of the Plaza Hotel in New York City with her Nanny, her pug dog Weenie, and her turtle Skipperdee. Thompson's goddaughter, Liza Minnelli, has been cited as a possible model for Eloise, as has the author herself".
I'm 50 years old. I'm a partner in a big law firm. You know I'm very successful, and I still haven't resolved my relationship with my mother.
Coppola's segment introduces cast and crew members only by their first name during the opening titles.
