In Sally Potter's new dark comedy The Party, Janet is hosting an intimate gathering of friends in her London home to celebrate her political ascension, while her husband, Bill, seems preoccupied. Janet's acerbic best friend, April, 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.

Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
"Potter's comic dissection of the London intelligentsia's personal and political angst is completely of the moment."
Kate Taylor - Globe and Mail
"Potter whips her splendid cast through a sophisticated dinner soiree, knocking down one worldly character after another with exposures of their personal failings."
Calvin Wilson - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
