The Last Days of Disco Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

As another installment of [[Performer~P112822~Whit Stillman~whitstillman]]'s trilogy, The Last Days of Disco fits chronologically between [[Feature~V32364~Metropolitan~metropolitan]] (1990) and [[Feature~V3934~Barcelona~barcelona]] (1994), with several cameos overlapping and linking the films. During "the very early 1980s," friends gather at a popular Manhattan disco club reminiscent of Studio 54, where getting past the velvet ropes and inside was the first step. Edgy ad-exec Jimmy ([[Performer~P2647~Mackenzie Astin~mackenzieastin]]) can sometimes get his clients in with the help of the club's womanizing assistant manager, his pal Des ([[Performer~P21371~Chris Eigeman~christophereigeman]]), who lets them enter via the rear door. Beautiful brunette Charlotte ([[Performer~P4911~Kate Beckinsale~katebeckinsale]]) and her former college classmate Alice ([[Performer~P230831~Chloe Sevigny~chloësevigny]]) move about the club during the 24-minute opening club sequence. Attorney Tom ([[Performer~P41869~Robert Sean Leonard~robertseanleonard]]) takes an interest in calm, reserved Alice. Both Alice and the opinionated, assertive Charlotte hold day jobs as entry-level editorial associates at a small book publisher. With Holly ([[Performer~P216227~Tara Subkoff~tarasubkoff]]) as a third roommate, the trio rents a railroad flat in the Manhattan's Yorkville neighborhood. Charlotte throws dinner parties in an effort to solidify a social circle as an alternative to "the ferocious pairing off" around her. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
