FILM: COMING ATTRACTIONS Ryan Gilbey
Saturday 22 August 1998
4 September Whit Stillman takes his time - the very dry, very funny American writer-director released Barcelona four years ago and only now returns with arguably his fondest and wittiest work, The Last Days of Disco. Chloe Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale (right) play the rising socialites whose life in "the very, very early 80s" revolves entirely around nightclubbing. As much an arch dissection of hedonism as a celebration of it, so it ain't no Boogie Nights.
Later in September: There's Something About Mary, the disgusting new comedy from the Farrelly Brothers, creators of Kingpin and Dumb & Dumber, starring Matt Dillon, Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller.
Also: Denzel Washington in Spike Lee's basketball movie He Got Game; Rachel Weisz and Anna Friel in The Land Girls; and Species II, the sequel that no one has been waiting for.
