Synopsis

The Last Days of Disco is a cleverly comic return to an early 1980s Manhattan party scene from director Whit Stillman (Metropolitan). At the center of the film’s roundelay of revelers are the icy Charlotte (Underworld’s Kate Beckinsale) and the demure Alice (Boys Don’t Cry’s Chloë Sevigny), by day toiling as publishing house assistants and by night looking for romance and entertainment at a Studio 54–like club. The Last Days of Disco is an affectionate yet unsentimental look at the end of an era, brimming with Stillman’s trademark dry humor.
