Film synopsis

Seduction, passion and power struggles unfold when the creators of Basic Instinct, director Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall) and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas (Flashdance), blow the lid off the seemingly glamorous world of Las Vegas show-dancing.

Sexy Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley – CSI) has what it takes to make it as a Las Vegas showgirl but needs a way in. To survive, she accepts a lap dancing gig at a seedy club, but when she meets Cristal (Gina Gershon), Vegas’ reigning show queen, Nomi wants everything she has – including her boyfriend (Kyle MacLachlan)! There begins an epic struggle for fame and survival in Sin City.

Gaining cult status as a camp classic in the vein of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls,Quentin Tarantino praised Showgirls as a “full-on, gigantic, big-budget exploitation movie.” Originally censored in the US, this infamous erotic thriller is presented completely uncut and in widescreen.
