Chloë Sevigny is the demure book editor partying in the early 1980s Manhattan scene in Whit Stillman’s THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO.
In her first film with director Whit Stillman, Chloë Sevigny is Alice, the ambitious, smart and somewhat shy young woman amongst rather boisterously verbose friends. From Criterion: “The Last Days of Disco, from director Whit Stillman, is a cleverly comic look at the early 1980s Manhattan party scene from the vantage point of the late nineties. At the center of the film’s roundelay of revelers are the icy Charlotte and the demure Alice, by day toiling as publishing house assistants and by night looking for romance and entertainment at a Studio 54–like club. Brimming with Stillman’s trademark dry humor, The Last Days of Disco is an affectionate yet unsentimental look at the end of an era.”
