54 is a 1998 drama directed and written by Mark Christopher based on the famous night club Studio 54 in the 1970s. Shane O'Shea (Ryan Phillippe) is a small town New Jersey guy with dreams of moving to New York City. One night while visiting the big apple with friends, he is the sole member of his group to be allowed into Studio 54 by Steve Rubell (Mike Myers). Shane begins working as a busboy and later a bartender and becomes a local celebrity in the club world. The young man meets soap-opera star and fellow New Jersey native Julie Black (Neve Campbell) and the two begin a romantic relationship. Shane forgets his small town roots and becomes swept away by the trappings of sex, drugs, and disco. Shane is the unfortunate victim of Steve Rubell's manipulation of his club scene in Studio 54 and eventually pays the ultimate price of fame.
