: If the mass of a stellar object can be considered to be concentrated at its center then two objects approaching the mass and : moving on parallel courses will move toward each other. Is this a legitimate example of a curved metric?

Yes.

:If so how much of GR : could be explained by expansion of this effect to multi body systems and where would it fail?

I'm not sure what your trying to explain. General relativity is a macroscopic explanation of gravity.
