Ballarat Film Society presents: The Party
8 November, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
Political satire in the time of Brexit; the latest film by British director Sally Potter (Orlando, 1992) gathers an A-class ensemble including Kristen Scott-Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer and Timothy Spall, gathering to celebrate their friend’s new Ministerial appointment. Shot during the time of the Brexit crisis, the film becomes a microcosm of Britain’s cultural anxieties and political fault-lines as well as a gauge of the temperature of feminist thought in 2017. Featuring a catty friend, a jittery coke-snorting banker, emasculated husbands and strong women, the dinner party serves as a classic comedy setting for hilarious entertainment.
