The Last Days of Disco
DIRECTOR: WHIT STILLMAN
CAST: KATE BECKINSALE, CHLOë SEVIGNY, ROBERT SEAN LEONARD
“Before disco, this country was a dancing wasteland,” recent Hampshire grad Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale) declares to her club-loving, creative-class coterie in Whit Stillman’s early-’80s-set comedy of manners. When not undermining one another, the voluble 20-somethings cut loose in a Studio 54–inspired nightspot, their professional and romantic woes suspended, if only for the length of a Sister Sledge track.
