Kinky Cocktail Hour: Season 1 Episode 216 đŸ„‚The FlufferđŸ„‚

In this episode, Lady Petra and Saffer Master review the Nicholas Cage/Elisabeth Shue movie “Leaving Las Vegas” over The Fluffer.

“Leaving Las Vegas” is a 1995 American romantic drama film written and directed by Mike Figgis, and based on the semi-autobiographical 1990 novel of the same name by John O’Brien. Nicolas Cage stars as a suicidal alcoholic in Los Angeles who, having lost his family and been recently fired, has decided to move to Las Vegas and drink himself to death. He loads a supply of liquor and beer into his BMW and gets drunk as he drives from Los Angeles to Nevada. Once there, he develops a romantic relationship with a pretty, but hardened prostitute (Elisabeth Shue). O’Brien committed suicide after signing away the film rights to the novel.

After limited release in the United States on October 27, 1995, “Leaving Las Vegas” was released nationwide on February 9, 1996, receiving strong praise from critics and audiences. Cage received the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama and the Academy Award for Best Actor, while Shue was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama and the Academy Award for Best Actress. The film also received nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Director.
