The Party

United Kingdom | 2017 | 71 minutes | Sally Potter

Opens March 2, 2018

Janet hosts a party to celebrate her new promotion, but once the guests arrive it becomes clear that not everything is going to go down as smoothly as the red wine.

Sally Potter's real-time satire on uber-chic Londoners is an absolute delight. Kristin Scott Thomas leads an incredible ensemble as Janet, a politician celebrating a career-escalating appointment with a group of friends who each arrive at her elegant home with, well, their own baggage. As the human drama escalates, husband Bill (Timothy Spall) is in his own bubble. Rogue banker Tom (Cillian Murphy) keeps sniffing off to the bathroom. Of course, there's a life coach, Gottfried (Bruno Ganz). Oh, and there's a gun. Will this party even make it to the appetizers? Who cares, when the company is so delicious?
