Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) has just been appointed Shadow Health Secretary, the crowning achievement of her career, and decides to celebrate by hosting a few close friends. But as the guests arrive, the reason for her husband Bill’s (Timothy Spall) preoccupation becomes clear and the soiree gradually goes up in smoke, along with the canapes and the guests’ illusions about themselves and each other. The Party is a savage satire of the middle classes, with a killer wit from British director Sally Potter and a  cast, including Kristin Scott Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, and Timothy Spall. A comic exploration of the deeper truths behind seemingly liberal convictions.
