Storyline

Michael Elgin may have been a master of the track back in high school, but now he's hit his thirties and his once-perfect form has devolved into a depressing drunken stumble. Life after high school just wasn't what he expected, and when his wife threatens to walk out while his career hangs by a thread Michael simply drinks away the pain. Written by Jwelch5742

touching
26 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Handsome Eion Bailey stars as an alcoholic husband who has emotionally drifted away from all who care for him. When an incident prompts his friends to organize an intervention, the psychiatrist does not show up and all hell breaks loose when his friends try to lead the intervention.

Life of the Party is very much a drama, punctuated with semi-frequent comic relief. The film is credible, as it feels very real while still managing to entertain, given the very serious subject matter. It is a tale of love and friendship and hope. Bailey is an exquisite actor, showcasing his talents superbly here. Very touching and moving. Worth watching.
