Description: During the last months of the disco era, in the very early 1980s, a popular dance club becomes the center of nightlife for a group of young people new to Manhattan -- "boyfriendless social failure" Alice; her treacherous friend from Hampshire College, Charlotte; their roommate, Holly; and the five Harvard guys the women meet in the city: Jimmy, the "Dancing Ad Man", who hangs on to his job by getting clients into the club; handsome corporate lawyer and part-time environmentalist Tom; Des, the club's allegedly bisexual underboss, who seems to specialize in women; Dan, an editorial assistant nostalgic for the intellectual ferment of the 1950s; and Josh, a neophyte prosecutor and disco enthusiast who suspects that the club is not being run according to conventionally accepted accounting principles.

The Last Days of Disco is an affectionate, ironic portrait of an era -- and a subgroup of not-quite innocents -- from a movie-maker as witty on paper as he is in film.
