Starring Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas and Timothy Spall, The Party is a hilarious British comedy wrapped around tragedy. Janet and husband Bill throw an intimate party to celebrate her promotion to Shadow Minister of Health in the party of opposition. As friends arrive, Bill makes some explosive revelations and everything goes up in smoke. What started off with champagne ends up with blood on the floor.
“Aa short, sharp, funny shock of a movie; a theatrical drawing-room comedy which plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punchline twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
