|Kate Beckinsale as Charlotte Pingress: The Last Days of Disco|
Kate Beckinsale as Charlotte Pingress: The Last Days of DiscoAlice's rather icy and conceited companion. She constantly offers "advice" to Alice and criticizes her lack of sociability. She is outgoing but controlling and dominating toward those around her.
The Last Days of Disco brings to a close American cinema raconteur extraordinaire Whit Stillman’s unofficial trilogy about the neuroses of the young and upscale. Following Metropolitan and Barcelona, this is a clever and sparkling return to the nighttime party scene in early eighties Manhattan. At the center of Stillman’s roundelay of revelers are the icy, commanding Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale) and the demure, pragmatic Alice (Chloë Sevigny), by day toiling as publishing house assistants, and by night looking for romance and entertainment at a premier, 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.
