“A consummate drawing-room divertissement played with relish by a dream ensemble”. Variety
Janet (Kristen Scott Thomas) is celebrating with an intimate dinner party while her husband Bill (Timothy Spall) is in a more sombre mood. The Party has wonderful pithy dialogue throughout, and some great comic moments as a series of revelations unfold.
“Patricia Clarkson steals the show, but everyone in Potter’s gifted cast gets their moment to shine in a sharp-edged, claustrophobic parlour piece that puts the boot into middle-class mores”. Empire
