The cult Midnight Movie of the 1990s is BACK with a VENGEANCE!
Showgirls is that singular film that’s so bad it’s good, and so good it’s bad. Elizabeth Berkley (Saved By the Bell) stars as our heroine Nomi Malone, hitchhiking across DIFFERENT PLACES! as she chases her showgirl dreams. She ends up in Las Vegas, only to become trapped in the seedy underbelly of the strip clubs of the Vegas strip, where she meets the esteemed and prestigious Cristal Connors played by Gina Gershon (Bound). Can Cristal teach Nomi how to take the cash and cash the checks and show them what they want to see? Or tear her down and destroy her, keeping the spotlight all for herself?
(Paul Verhoeven, US & France, 1995, 128 min, in English)
