There are films that merely tiptoe into the world of the erotic – and then there is Showgirls.
Ridiculed and reviled on release, arguably responsible for derailing the Hollywood career of its star Elizabeth Berkley… but more recently re-examined as a satirical inversion of the American dream into a glitzy nightmare.
Small-town girl Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) is determined to make it as feature dancer in the bitch-eat-bitch, sex-soaked world of the Las Vegas showrooms. The reigning queen of Sin City Cristal Connors (Gina Gershon) is not going to give up her crown – or man (Kyle MacLachlan) – without a fight.
Imagined by master stylist director Paul Verhoeven and legendary screenwriter of the outrageous Joe Eszterhas (the duo behind Basic Instinct), Showgirls is more than a movie – it's a phenomenon.
Director: Paul Verhoeven
Cast: Elizabeth Berkley, Kyle MacLachlan, Gina Gershon
