The Party

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

From Sally Potter (ORLANDO) comes this wicked comedy. “A theater canapé that’ll make you laugh and think and be grateful (hopefully) that your friends aren’t this kooky!” —Lindsey Barr, Associated Press. 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. Also starring Emily Mortimer, Cherry Jones, Cillian Murphy and Bruno Ganz. R. 71 Min.
