A jump into the Seventies, 27 February 2003

Watching Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party is like jumping into the past in the Seventies, when the play takes place. It's about a supposedly enjoyable party that soon becomes a hilarious and tragic disaster. And all is due to the ambition of being part of the middle class. The play is a portrait of people of that time, but nonetheless its themes are really up-to-date. For example, everything and everyone must be at Beverly's command so you can guess that it is unsafe to be victims of the desires of people like the cold-hearted Beverly, because events could take the wrong turn. This charming film is blessed with very talented actors who develop very peculiar characters. I really recommend it because it is clever thanks to the analysis of social reality and at the same time you can enjoy yourself with a good laugh.
