The Last Days of Disco, from director Whit Stillman, is a cleverly comic look at the early 1980s Manhattan party scene from the vantage point of the late nineties. At the center of the film’s roundelay of revelers are the icy Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale) and the demure Alice (Chloe Sevigny), by day toiling as publishing house assistants and by night looking for romance and entertainment at a Studio 54–like club. Brimming with Stillman’s trademark dry humor, The Last Days of Disco is an affectionate yet unsentimental look at the end of an era.
Kentucky Life celebrates Presidents' Day with stories about U.S. Presidents who have ties to Kentucky. The 1806 Logan County duel involving future president Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Louisville next to the family home, and Lincoln's hometown of Hodgenville is Our Town. Plus, Confederate President Jefferson Davis' ties to Kentucky are also featured.
We learn more about the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery from three men who have researched its past.
