The Party (2017, UK, Dir. Sally Potter, 71 mins, PG)

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.

For November we are showing ‘In the Middle of Nowhere’ (3.09 mins), directed by Lauryn Jackman. In this poetic film, a young woman searches for her identity.
 
A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month.
 
With two showings at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
