The Party (15)
UK/2017/71mins/15 Dir: Sally Potter With: Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Cherry Jones, Bruno Ganz
Janet has just been appointed Shadow Heath Secretary, the crowning achievement of her career, and decides to celebrate by hosting a few close friends. But as the guests arrive her husband Bill makes a shocking announcement, leading to a cascade of explosive revelations and unravelling the soiree even before the canapés are served. As people’s illusions about themselves and each other - whether romantic, political or existential - go up in smoke, a night that began with champagne ends with blood on the floor. A post-Brexit statement about modern Britain, this is a savage satire of the middle class, exploring the deeper truths behind seemingly liberal convictions.
