Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 06/25/1998
"...Delicious malice and unexpected compassion....The cast is first-rate..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/1998
"...Accomplished film-making....Fine performances and polished wit..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/16/1998
"...Stillman evokes the hopeful melancholy of world-weary kids searching, á la Chic, for good times..." -- Rating: A-
New York Times - 05/29/1998
"...[Stillman] again renders his characters' fretfulness in deft, funny and improbably touching ways..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/29/1998
"...Sharp-eyed and charming....Made with Stillman's trademark dry wit and whimsical sense of humor..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/29/1998
"...[Stillman] nails his characters with perfectly heard dialogue and laconic satire....The underlying tone of the film is sweet, fond and a little sad..."
Film Comment - 07/01/2009
"A masterful evocation of the giddiness and instantaneous nostalgia of waning youth."
A.V. Club - 08/26/2009
"It's hard to watch this movie and not feel nostalgic -- not for the end of the disco era, but for those heady late-'90s days when small, almost novelistic movies like this were relatively common..." -- Grade: B+

Product Description:

The third in Whit Stillman's excellent trio of talkative yet thought-provoking odes to days gone by. This installment is set in the Manhattan of the early 80's (chronologically between "Metropolitan" and "Barcelona") as the hedonistic disco era is on the wane and the money-grubbing self-absorbed era of junk bonds and MTV is on the rise. Two conservative recent Hampshire College graduates slave away as editorial assistants by day and vampy party-goers by night. Witty thoughtful banter moves this film along without the need for an oppressive disco soundtrack or gratuitous drug usage that seem to permeate films of the timeframe.
