About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Potter's movie may be too small to leave a substantial legacy. But you can't take your eyes off it as ace actors, led by a deliciously acerbic Patricia Clarkson, serve up hilarious verbal fireworks that knock the wind out of you. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 17, 2018

Fresh: Shot in a glossy, appealing black-and-white and filmed in a single location, The Party generates a pressure cooker atmosphere. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Feb 21, 2018

Rotten: Potter has assembled all the makings of an acid-bath of a social satire but somehow avoids the killing blow. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Feb 22, 2018

Fresh: Potter's cast never overstays its welcome, giving us plenty to think - and talk - about, and in a scant 71 minutes. – Alan Zilberman, Washington Post, Feb 21, 2018
