Director: Sally Potter ● Starring: Timothy Spall, Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz and Kristen Scott Thomas.
Politician Janet is celebrating her new cabinet post by holding a little soirée with her academic husband Bill, some old friends and their partners, plus a smooth-talking banker. What could possibly go wrong?
Some long-hidden secrets and smoking guns, perhaps? Playing out in real time, director Potter delivers an observant, droll, just-absurd-enough farce, with Scott Thomas holding the film together as our dubious heroine. “A short, sharp, funny shock of a movie” (The Guardian).
Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.
