The Last Days of Disco | Full Movie | Movies Anywhere
Director Whit Stillman (Metropolitan) returns to New York nightlife themes, this time with a very danceable beat. Two beautiful recent college graduates played by Kate Beckinsale (Serendipity) and Chlöe Sevigny ("Big Love") escape at night from their publishing jobs and terrible apartment to the most popular dance club of disco's waning days in the early '80s, with New Wave breezes blowing in fashion and music.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Last Days of Disco is a 1998 coming-of-age film following the lives of a group of post-Ivy League friends who frequent an NYC disco circa 1980. There's some cocaine use (never directly shown, but strongly implied), cigarette smoking, and drinking. One of the lead characters, in the aftermath of her first sexual encounter, contracts gonorrhea and herpes; she's initially shamed by the man who gave her these venereal diseases and accused of having multiple partners before he confesses. While waiting outside a nightclub, three men attack one of the lead characters, striking him in the face with a club before running off; some blood. There's brief nudity in two scenes: A woman is topless on the dance floor, and a woman is shown topless while having sex. Language includes "bulls--t," "bitch," and "sucks." Overall, the adult content and relatively slow pace of the film make this best for mature older teens and up.
