Whit Stillman gave an excellent Q&A in Sweden from Svenska Filminstitutet. Learn more about how he names his characters (how all the bad guys are called Rick or a variation), how The Last Days of Disco was edited down, film vs. digitial, how he hopes to continue The Cosmopolitans (20:00 mark) and how he’d like to shoot some of it in Sweden if he’s able to continue it.
Will Ashton for Cinema Blend writes about the 10 best Kate Beckinsale movies. Unsurprisingly, both Love & Friendship & The Last Days of Disco are in the mix.
1. The Last Days Of Disco
Whit Stillman is one of our great, if often under-respected, wordsmiths who also happens to helm a great many terrific movies. One of his better works is often considered to be The Last Days of Disco, which features one of Kate Beckinsale’s best performances — if not her absolute best to date. Joined alongside Chloe Sevigny, Beckinsale often proves her firecracker talents for comedy is often at their best when she works with Stillman.
