Whit Stillman Wrote ‘Disco’ To Warn His Daughters

Interviews by Phil Hoade for The Guardian written on July 10, 2018

ย โ€˜Iโ€™d written it to warn my daughters of the perils out there, how guys areโ€™ โ€ฆ

The article talks about the making of the film with interesting anecdotes:

The final scene, where we break the realism and everybody on the subway starts dancing to Love Train, was shot in a defunct station attached to a transport museum; we could control a train going in and out. Itโ€™s a bunch of New York background actors who youโ€™d normally never see dancing on screen because they donโ€™t look young and cool. Itโ€™s great to have all these unlikely looking people cutting loose.

Suggest a ‘The Last Days of Disco’ Funko Pop Figure

Mira Sorvino, who played Marta in Barcelona, now has a Funko Pop figure for Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.

We thought it would be cool if there was a Funko Pop figure for Kate Beckinsale & Chloe Sevigny, from Whit Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco. We definitely think it would be a popular set. Some are now worth thousands.

Funko takes submissions, so please send in a request for that duo or any other characters from Stillman’s films.
