The Party (15)
Love, friendships and political convictions are called into question in this comedy of tragic proportions. Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) and her husband Bill (Timothy Spall) have gathered their friends (Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer and Cillian Murphy) to celebrate Janet’s promotion. As news is shared and unexpected announcements are made the soirée gradually unravels. People’s illusions about themselves and each other go up in smoke, along with the canapes, and the night that began with champagne ends with blood on the floor.
Directed by Sally Potter.
