“A masterful evocation of the giddiness and instantaneous nostalgia of waning youth.” – Film Comment
“Mr. Stillman generates so much fun out of the spectacle of young people cavorting on the crowded dance floor with mindless lyricism.” – Andrew Sarris
The Last Days of Disco, from director Whit Stillman, is a cleverly comic look at the early 1980s Manhattan party scene from the vantage point of the late nineties. At the center of the film’s roundelay of revelers are the icy Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale) and the demure Alice (Chloë Sevigny), by day toiling as publishing house assistants and by night looking for romance and entertainment at a Studio 54–like club. Brimming with Stillman’s trademark dry humor, The Last Days of Disco is an affectionate yet unsentimental look at the end of an era [synopsis courtesy Criterion].
Dir. Whit Stillman. 1998. 113 min.
