Movies 54 (1998, Ryan Phillippe, Salma Hayek) Published 5 months ago on December 20, 2018 As Manhattan heads for the 1980s, Shane O’Shea (RYAN PHILLIPPE) pressures his friends into visiting notorious nightspot Studio 54. At the door, only Shane is allowed in, and club owner Steve Rubell (MIKE MYERS) offers him a job as a busboy. He accepts, leaving his New Jersey home to move in with colleague Greg (BRECKIN MEYER) and Greg’s wife, hat-check girl and aspiring singer Anita (SALMA HAYEK). O’Shea soon acclimatises to the club’s values of promiscuity and tax avoidance, and watches as Greg does the same, dealing drugs while side-stepping Rubell’s regular attempts at seduction. Club regulars Julie Black (NEVE CAMPBELL) and Disco Dottie (ELLEN ALBERTINI DOW) are equally debauched, and while their hedonism is legendary it is out of place with the new morality which looks disapprovingly down on the Studio, its inhabitants, and the man who made it happen… 54 is a fascinating exercise in Hollywood hypocrisy and while few audiences could want to emulate the characters’ collective narcosis, the most compelling character is Rubell, who appears in a series of cameos and knockabout sketches. While not a historical reflection of the truth (Rubell’s partner Ian Schrager is written out, as is their gaol sentence), the film is balanced by a great sense of period, with the excellent soundtrack and production design blending with a substantial cast of Studio 54 regulars ranging from MICHAEL YORK to porn Olympian RON JEREMY. production details USA | 106 minutes | 1998 Writer and Director: Mark Christopher cast Ryan Phillippe as Shane O’Shea Salma Hayek as Anita Randazzo Breckin Meyer as Greg Randazzo Mike Myers as Steve Rubell Neve Campbell as Julie Black Sherry Stringfield as Viv Sela Ward as Billie Auster Daniel Lapaine as Marc the Doorman Erika Alexander as Ciel Heather Matarazzo as Grace O’Shea Aemilia Robinson as Kelly O’Shea Skipp Sudduth as Harlan O’Shea Mark Ruffalo as Ricko Lauren Hutton as Liz Vangelder Arthur J.
