All the characters are searching for something to make their lives more fulfilling. Some are searching for everlasting love and some are just wanting something different.

Third feature film of director Whit Stillman. Metropolitan (1990) and Barcelona (1994) were the earlier works. This movie is the third film in director Whit Stillman's "Doomed-Bourgeois-in-Love series", these other two pictures being the other films in the series. This film includes a number of cameo appearances from characters that appeared in the two earlier movies. See more »

This very witty film hasn't received nearly enough praise for its effortless humor, great ensemble acting, and brilliant script. The film is a portrait of loosely-connected friends at the end of the disco era, with Alice and Charlotte at the center. You'll get more of a boogy rave rush from this talky indie than Ryan Phillippe's hot body in 54. Damn, do I love Chloe Sevigny, who makes Alice so real and vulnerable while Kate Beckinsale turns Charlotte into a hilarious bitch. They go clubbing, become involved with guys, there's some scams going at the club they frequent. It's sweetly hilarious and without a doubt worth seeing.
