Overview

Mark Christopher wrote and directed this look back at the Disco Era when the popular Studio 54 was at its apogee in the late '70s. With obvious comparisons to Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights (1997) and Whit Stillman's The Last Days of Disco (1998), the story introduces working-class 19-year-old Irish-American Shane O'Shea (Ryan Phillippe), who has lived with his father and siblings since the death of his mother when he was 12. Shane quickly rises from busboy to bartender at Studio 54, co-owned and managed in a paternal manner by entrepreneur Steve Rubell (Mike Myers). Busboy Greg Randazzo (Breckin Meyer) and Greg's wife, Anita (Salma Hayek), the club's coat check girl, become Shane's new friends, and he encounters the possibility of romance with soap star Julie Black (Neve Campbell). The story spans the summer of 1979 until the decline of Studio 54 a year later with IRS investigations, followed by the arrest and jailing of Rubell. Costumes by Ellen Lutter capture the glitter and glam-glitz of the period.

Studio 54 is the mecca of disco pop where the rich and famous rub shoulders, this is the melting pot of the pop culture that place us to what we are today. Anybody who grew-up in the 80's knows this era. It is a brilliant movie, tells all the world inside the world of the elite, the dreamer and looser. Watching the movie makes me feel being part of the movie, part of society that Steve Rubell created....Those who grew up during the 80's I recommend that you would not be disappointed (except if you are a rock n' roller).
