Castle Rock, the studio that produced the film, wanted a big name to star in the "Alice" role. They put in a call to Winona Ryder's agent with a firm offer. In the meantime, Chloe Sevigny read for the part and was perfect for the role, according to Whit Stillman. They were able to get out of the offer to Ryder because her agent took four days to return the call. 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.
