Storyline

The movie Dons Party is about a wild house party in a suburban Australian neighbourhood. Don Henderson convinces his wife to have another party so that their friends can gather to watch the election, drink and carry on. Dons wife, Kath sees the party as just more work, while Don sees it as a chance to break his boring routine. The year is 1969 and some of Dons friends have jumped on the bandwagon of sexual freedom and experimentation. However, others at the party are more conservative about their politics and sex, and naturally, arguments break out over politics and fist fights erupt over the seduction of others wives. Written by Lloyd Harris <floyd@idirect.com>

Don Has Dated ............Badly
14 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Dons Party...A 1976 movie about the "real" Australia has dated very badly. This is my first viewing of this "Australian Classic", but i found it a fabricated experience. Its the sort of writing that Anton Checkov would have came up with....when he was 3 years old. The acting is only OK, and i found the script tedious and...at times...pretentious. David Williamson has written many Australian plays and has been quite successful, but here the stagy feel about the structure is not a bonus. No doubt that many people from that time in history still rate it very highly. After all....Australia is not known for making good movies. (They are good at...cricket !!)
