Whit Stillman's 1998 comedy classic documents the decline and fall of the Studio 54-era disco scene in early-1980s Manhattan. The films stars Chloë Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale as book editors fresh out of college, trying to make it, finding love and themselves while frequenting the local disco. The dialogue is catty, bitingly satirical and perfectly observed... and the music is to die for.
To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its release, we welcome Whit Stillman to Curzon Soho for a Q&A following a rare 35mm screening of the film, as part of Curzon’s ongoing Enthusiasms repertory strand.
Make sure also to join us on Saturday 21 July at 3pm, when Whit will be in conversation after a screening of his 2016 costume drama Love & Friendship, in which he reunited with both Kate and Chloë for his irreverent adaptation of Jane Austen’s Lady Susan.
