The Party

Old-fashioned charm meets sharp wit and modern social satire in The Party, a biting comedy carried by a shining performance from Patricia Clarkson.

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, and a night that began with champagne may end with gunplay.

“Potter's comic dissection of the London intelligentsia's personal and political angst is completely of the moment.”

Globe and Mail

“It's short, sharp and anything but sweet - this delectable comedy of errors whose top drawer ensemble cast thrives on cutting dialogue and revelations that sees lives unravel like a ball of wool in the hands of a playful kitten.”
