Whit Stillman’s
THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO

(1998) “Manhattan, the early 1980s. Recent graduates from an upper crust college, Alice (Sevigny) and Charlotte (Beckinsale) – flatmates and friends of a sort – pass their days working as trainee publishing editors, and most of their nights discussing social niceties at a fashionable disco where assistant manager Des (Eigman) courts the boss’s disfavor by admitting the wrong kind of clientele. The girls hang out at the disco with a preppy bunch of Harvard admen and lawyers; rumors, rivalry and falling-out is rife and relationships are frequently at risk. The third comedy of manners in Stillman’s loose trilogy about ‘doomed bourgeois in love’ again highlights the writer/director’s expertise with naturalistically articulate dialogue whose idioms, ironies and absurdities provide vivid insights into the delusions, desires and often ludicrous tribal rituals of the young, privileged and mostly, pretty ineffectual.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London). DCP. Approx. 113 min.

Part of Whit Stillman’s “Doomed. Bourgeois. In Love” Trilogy.
