In Sally Potter's new dark comedy THE PARTY, Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) is hosting an intimate gathering of friends in her London home to celebrate her political ascension, while her husband Bill (Timothy Spall) seems preoccupied. Janet's acerbic best friend April (Patricia Clarkson) arrives and others follow, some with their own dramatic news to share—but an announcement by Bill provokes a series of revelations that gradually unravel the sophisticated soiree. Also starring Emily Mortimer, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, and a teetering Cillian Murphy.
“A deliciously heightened, caviar-black comedy that sets up its brittle, bourgeois characters like bowling pins and gleefully knocks them down in 71 minutes flat.” —Guy Lodge, Variety “All of the performances are magnificent…. And amid the middle-class intellectual squabbling there’s a palpable sense of tension and danger. It’s openly theatrical, but if it feels like a film of a play, it’s a play you really should see.” —Anna Smith, Time Out
