“Six Degrees of Separation” Is Sassy and Smart

On the surface, all of the characters of “Six Degrees of Separation” end up being victims, in one way or another, of a charming young African-American conman named Paul (J. Alphonse Nicholson), who sashays into multiple lives claiming to be the son of movie star Sidney Poitier. On a deeper level, however, it’s really hard to say. Perhaps it’s greed, an obsession with celebrity, or maybe they have an emptiness or need that Paul sniffs out, fills, and then worsens when he disappears.
