Storyline

To celebrate her long-awaited prestigious post as a Shadow Minister for Health and, hopefully, the stepping stone to party leadership, the newly-appointed British opposition politician, Janet, is throwing a party for friends at her London flat. Of course, in this select and intimate soirée, apart from Bill--Janet's self-denying academic husband--a motley crew of hand-picked elite guests have been invited: There's April, the sourly cynical American best friend; her unlikely German husband, Gottfried; the loving lesbian couple of Jinny and Martha; and finally, Tom, the smooth finance shark in the impeccable suit. But inevitably, before dinner is served, the upbeat ambience will shatter to pieces, as festering secrets will start surfacing in this perfect domestic war-zone. Undoubtedly, after this night, things will never be the same again. Written by Nick Riganas

Highstrung empty career creatures
19 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This Potter film paints a bleak picture of modern people. There isn't ONE person in this cast of 7 whom the audience can really sympathise with. The 7 characters call themselves friends but treat each other with hostility, dishonesty etc. Too me it felt more like an unreal vacuum of lovelessness than a real group of people. Even the super-talented Cillian Murphy comes across as one-sided and overacting. The 'twist' at the end is also not very interesting and a bit of a cliché. I've seen much better work from Sally Potter!
