Based on the characters and events touched on in the film
The Last Days of Disco, Whit Stillman has created a funny poignant story about two estranged college friends coming to terms with their college days.
After attending a movie premiere in Manhattan, Jimmy and Des find themselves at the bar, Petrossian, confessing their mutual affection for Alice Kinnon, the failed socialite from their inner circle, and examining the subsequent collapse of their friendship. Filled with witty dialogue and the clarity that comes with alcohol, Cocktails at Petrossian reminds us that our past often remains in our present.
