A politician’s soiree quickly descends into farce in Sally Potter’s star-laden satire, a sharply observed study of love and politics . Mark Kermode, Observer film critic.
Janet (Kristen Scott Thomas) has just been promoted to Shadow Cabinet Minister of Health. This achievement is the highest level of her politic career and she intends to celebrate it with a small party with her husband Bill (Timothy Spall), and her closest friends: the acid April (Patricia Clarkson with an excellent comedy timing) and her crazy husband Gottfried (Bruno Ganz); her assistant’s husband (Cillian Murphy), and the lesbian couple (Emily Mortimer and Cherry Jones). The party which was supposed to be a celebration suffers a turnaround when Bill reveals a secret and all the tension among those polite and educated people blows into a sequence of offenses, tension and a marvelous dark comedy. The movie is anarchic, unpretentious, with hysterical characters, sharp dialogues, and is surprisingly funny. Vinicius Coutinho IMDb22 October 2017
