Storyline

The comedy follows Sam, as her life is turned upside down on a big night out. When reunited with her old college friends, Sam is forced to re-evaluate her life and constructs an elaborate façade in order to convince herself and her friends that she has it all. But once her dysfunctional yet devoted trio of best mates intervene, her carefully crafted charade begins to crumble amidst the shots, cigarettes, ciders and toilet transgressions. Faced with some very harsh realities, Sam must struggle to remain true to herself and reassess exactly what she wants from life. Written by P.SMURF

Powder Room is adapted from a stage play, When Women Wee. Its theatrical origins is difficult to hide as the film is essentially based in the female toilets of a night club.

In the course of an evening in a typical disco in any town in the UK, Sam (Sheridan Smith) tired of her dreary life and dead end job makes out to be a divorce lawyer to two sophisticated friends she has met.

This means bad mouthing her usual low rent and trashy friends but Sam cannot avoid her mates for long. In the toilet cubicles, the truth unfurls that Sam's life is not as exciting as she wants it to be.

If Powder Room was meant to be farce, then it is not funny enough. If it wanted to show us the amusing goings on in women's toilets, then the audience did not need to see it as the its lacks a strong plot humour and defined characters.
