Feature; R
Director:Whit Stillman
Cast:Chloe Sevigny, Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Beals

Whitman (Metropolitan, Barcelona) once again wields his rapier wit and irony-tinged sensibilities in this study of early '80s nightlife. Sevigny and Beckinsale are young publishing assistants who escape the banalities of their humdrum existence beneath the pulse of the strobe lights. Accompanied by an oh-so-Whitmanesque clique of self-absorbed, hilariously overanalytical Harvard and Hampshire grads, the lip-glossed pair navigate that cusp in time when polyester yielded to preppiedom.
