2h 11m Drama 1995

Small-town girl Nomi Malone is determined to make it as feature dancer in the harsh world of the Las Vegas showrooms.

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—but 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.
