Most movies about Boston present the city as one of two stereotypes: There's the townie, bank robber, Irish neighborhood version of Boston, and then there's the smarty-pants, elitist, Harvard persona.
Consider, for example, their film "A Show About Us" which will be playing Thursday night at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge. It's about three 20-somethings from very different backgrounds — one is a state school kid from the outer suburbs, one a Newton native who went to private schools, and one a West Coast transplant — living together in Davis Square and trying to figure out life in Boston.
