A Very Good Adaptation Of The NYC Yuppie Scene

  • Mar 31, 2003
Don't let the title fool you. The Last Days of Disco is at least not primarilly about the Disco movement. Its main purpose is to show how many recent college graduates struggle to find their identities as well as love in New York City.

The story mainly flow around the relationship between Charlotte and Alice. Sometimes it is good. Other times a bit stormy. Charlotte envies ability to succede professionally and attract more desireable guys. However Alice has deep rooted insecurities about confronting those who offend and or control her.

Other parts of this story focus around insecurities of the male actors: Des, Jimmy, Josh, Van, and even the prima donna nightclub owner, Bernie. Des seems to have a running line how he confesses to women that he is gay to get their sympathy and a hopeful sexual escapade. Jimmy is oh so worreid about making impressions upon his boss and potential clients at his advertising agency job by trying to get them into the trendy night club where Van is all to happy to keep out such elements.

All these characters are intertwined in various scenes where one can certainly reminisce about those first few years after college and all the good times and heartaches that one endured. The varying insecurities can be a bit trying sometimes. However, the general adaptation with the disco music as a backdrop certainly paints a scene which many people certainly have faced. It succedes in many dramatic ways.
