SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

Beneath the glitter balls glide the dancers. Beneath their flashy outfits beat narcissistic hearts filled with despair. For Tony Manero (Travolta) and his friends this one night is a relief from humdrum lives, the chance to be somebody on the dancefloor, and with the big dance contest coming up Tony has his sights set even higher; escaping Brooklyn and his stifling family. Amidst the false glamour of the Seventies disco scene lurk self-obsessed denizens of the night, caught up in drugs and racial conflicts, unable to live up to their own dreams. A smash hit on release and perennial favourite, Saturday Night Fever strikes the perfect balance between the joy of letting rip on the dancefloor and the banality of life outside the clubs.
