The Last Days of DiscoDirector: Whit Stillman, Chloë Sevigny, Kate Beckinsale, Christopher Eigeman
As another installment of Whit Stillman's trilogy, The Last Days of Disco fits chronologically between Metropolitan (1990) and 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 (Mackenzie Astin) can sometimes get his clients in with the help of the club's womanizing assistant manager, his pal Des (Chris Eigeman), who lets them enter via the rear door. Beautiful brunette Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale) and her former college classmate Alice (Chloe Sevigny) move about the club during the 24-minute opening club sequence. Attorney Tom (Robert Sean Leonard) 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 (Tara Subkoff) 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.

Wonderful in every aspects. Keeps its charm under multiple viewing. Whit Stillman is a genious gentleman.
As usual with Stillman, the writing is top drawer. Kate Beckinsale has not been this good since.
This is the film that brought Kate Beckinsale to my attention and helped Chloe Sevigny become a star (prior to Big Love), the entire cast is fantastic and the soundtrack is great. This is a definite must see film!!
