So what do women really get up to in nightclub loos? A new voice in British film tells all

7 December 2013 4:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Up-and-coming director Mj Delaney takes a raunchy but realistic peep behind the door where no man can venture

Getting the female perspective across in mainstream cinema has been a long slog. It is still unusual to find a young woman behind the camera as well as in front of it. But, at 27, director Mj Delaney has now put the unvarnished truth on screen. Her new film, Powder Room, which stars Sheridan Smith and Jaime Winstone in an adaptation of a play by Rachel Hirons, expresses an unapologetic disregard for the meek, self-effacing heroines that commonly earn screen time.

Yet this was not what drew her to the story. "I just thought it was funny, honest and truthful, as well as refreshingly realistic and grimy," she told the Observer this weekend.

The idea that the plot, which revolves around the ladies' loo in a nightclub, might alienate male cinema-goers did not occur to her. »

Powder Room Review

7 December 2013 3:50 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: M.J. Delaney.

Starring: Sheridan Smith, Kate Nash, Oona Chaplin, Jaime Winstone.

Running Time: 86 minutes.

Rating: 15.

Synopsis: Sam (Sheridan Smith) is on a night out with an old friend visiting from Paris (Kate Nash). Coincidentally her loud, shameless and unglamorous close friends are in the same club for the night. It becomes a juggling act as she tries to hide her true lifestyle from her Paris friend and keep her real friends happy.

Powder Room is based on the play ‘When Women Wee’, which shows insight into the glamorous world of nose powdering, make-up applying and general toiletry needs on a night out. It is a very relatable depiction of how the high expectations of a night out slowly but surely descend into a nightmare, often fueled by alcohol, awkward bump-ins, wardrobe malfunctions and horrid bouncers.

Despite being based on a play and shot in one location, Powder Room never feels static or boring, »

This Ain't California, Nebraska, Frozen: what to see at the cinema this week

This Ain't California | Nebraska | Frozen | Kill Your Darlings | Oldboy | Powder Room | Homefront | Getaway | The Patience Stone | Big Bad Wolves | Black Nativity | Floating Skyscrapers | Klown | Rough Cut | A Long Way From Home | Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's

This Ain't California (Tbc)

(Marten Perseil, 2012, Ger) 90 mins

Just as its East German teen subjects took skateboarding behind the Iron Curtain, so this "documentary" smuggles faked footage into its true 1980s history. The result is a fascinating parallel pop-cultural history with a moving (but imaginary) human centre. Working out what's true and what's not only adds to the fun.

Nebraska (15)

(Alexander Payne, 2013, Us) Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb. 115 mins

Stubborn old Dern and son take a quixotic road trip back into family, and American, history.

Frozen (PG)

(Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee, 2013, Us) Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel. 108 mins

Disney's classy, sparkly assault on the Christmas holidays, with wintry vistas, musical numbers and a sister-powered fairytale. »

Film Review: 'Powder Room'

6 December 2013 3:50 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆In recent years we've seen British actress Sheridan Smith step away from the image she crafted for herself in the Beeb's Two Pints of Larger and a Packet of Crisps, making headway with an impressive - not to mention award-winning - career in theatre, most notably in the West End adaptation of Legally Blonde. It seems odd, then, that Smith would return to a role that seems beneath her in Mj Delaney's Powder Room (2013). Based on Rachel Heron's Fringe play When Women Wee, Delaney's debut feature gathers together Oona Chaplin, singer-songwriter Kate Nash and Jaime Winstone alongside Smith.

Powder Room – review

5 December 2013 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A cackhanded attempt to do a British Bridesmaids is pure ITV2

Oh, here we go: the semi-inevitable cackhanded British attempt to summon up one-gazillionth of the interest generated by Bridesmaids or Girls. Mj Delaney's film explores various resistible ways of opening out Rachel Hirons' stageplay When Women Wee, set over one evening in a Croydon nightclub's loos: attitudinous musical interludes, in-yer-face puking inserts, cutaways to Kate Nash snorting coke to the accompaniment of a comedy bugle. When the pottymouthing stops, it emerges that Hirons has points to make about female status anxiety – but Powder Room is only as empowering as anything else that might go out on ITV2 after the watershed.

Rating: 2/5

Powder Room Review

4 December 2013 5:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The term ‘ladette’ is out-modish but once upon a time would have been apt in describing the female characters in debut director M.J. Delaney’s new Brit chick flick, Powder Room. All-female comedy has come a long way since, without the need for a weepy and superfluous romance. This is a cack-handed confidence boost in the guise of an upfront, no-frills drama, set in (and out) of a girls’ nightclub loo.

Sam (Sheridan Smith) is invited out with an old college friend, Michelle (Kate Nash) and her friend, Jess (Oona Chaplin) to a local dive of a South London nightclub. Glamorous Michelle and Jess seem to have it all, living and working in Paris. Keen to improve her lot in the world, Sam pretends she’s more than she is, not wanting to appear that she’s not made much of her life since studying. All goes to plan until »

Powder Room is a rare film all about women, and all the more universal for it | Deborah Orr

18 October 2013 4:12 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A new British comedy focuses on the very modern frustrations of a group of female friends, but says more about life today – for men and women – than most battle-of-the-sexes movies do

A new British film, Powder Room, released next month,  features an all-female five-piece rock band, Fake Club. Which, if you watched a lot of editions of Top of the Pops in the 1970s, is nice. Back then, though female singers existed, no women actually played musical instruments, apart from Suzi Quatro. Though lots of the men had long hair, or wore makeup, presumably in compensation.

That, however, is not the only respect in which Powder Room is notable, gender-wise. It's being described as the British Bridesmaids, since it's a comedy about and for women. But, unlike Bridesmaids, it has no male lead characters – just a couple of tiny walk-on parts. This is not surprising, bearing in mind that nearly »

First Teaser Trailer for Powder Room with Sheridan Smith, Jaime Winstone & Kate Nash

7 May 2013 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Based on the hit Edinburgh festival play, When Women Wee, Powder Room is set to hit cinemas on our shores later this year.

Young director Mj Delaney makes her feature directorial debut with the British comedy, led by the ever-brilliant Sheridan Smith, who has very much been deservedly on the rise in recent years.

And after a long wait, the first teaser trailer has finally landed online.

A ribald, rowdy exposé of what goes on behind the closed doors of the ladies’ toilets, Powder Room is outrageously funny. Pulling back the curtain on a world that remains a mystery to men and is delightfully familiar to women, it has broad appeal and is surprisingly full of heart. Featuring a wide array of weird and wonderful characters, from novice teenaged party girls, to seasoned ravers this is a no-holds-barred look at women’s friendships, rivalries and romances in all their infinite variety. »

Now in its 12th year, the Tribeca Film Festival is one of the premiere artistic showcases and industry marketplaces for independent cinema.
