“THE PARTY is a comedy wrapped around a tragedy. It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor.”

What should be a discreet soirée of the bourgeoisie quickly descends into chaos as the (mostly) genteel guests one-up each other with dramatic announcements and secrets bubble over until everything bursts.
“Stingingly funny … conceived during the 2015 election, filmed over a fortnight during the Brexit referendum, The Party eviscerates a political class that has lost its way.” – Evening Standard
” . . . 5/5 Excellent. Wonderful acting, wonderful directing, wonderful cinematography, very sharp and funny writing. The audience at the cinema I was at burst into applause when the credits rolled, which is something I have not seen for a while.”
