The Bigger Picture film club will be showing ‘The Party’ (2017) at 8pm on Thursday, 26 April 2018, at the Ivy House.
Janet (Kristen Scott Thomas) hosts a party to celebrate her new promotion to Shadow Minister for Health, with a few close friends, many of them rather closer to each other than she knows. A (very) black comedy; as new twists in relationships are revealed or hinted at, it becomes clear that this celebration is far better watched than participated in. Timothy Spall (playing her husband, where still waters may, or may not, be running exceedingly deep) excels as usual, as does the remainder of the cast in a very theatrical film (good lines, fast dialogue, provokes thought).
Director (and writer): Sally Potter
Running time: 71 minutes.
We say: - the dialogue in this film positively crackles.
Film at 8pm.
