Les Derniers jours du disco (Whit Stillman) – Bande annonce
“Avant le disco, ce pays etait le desert”
Charlotte et Alice viennent de décrocher leur premier emploi. Entre la première, carriériste à fond et autoritaire, et la seconde, fausse naïve dont il faut se méfier, une amitié incertaine et teintée de secrètes rivalités s’installe. Au Club, la boite disco chic de New York, les deux débutantes font la connaissance de quatre messieurs…
