To celebrate her long-awaited prestigious post as a Shadow Minister for Health and, hopefully, the stepping stone to party leadership, the newly-appointed British opposition politician, Janet, is throwing a party for friends at her London flat. Of course, in this select and intimate soirée, apart from Bill--Janet's self-denying academic husband--a motley crew of elite hand-picked guests have been invited: There's April, the sourly cynical American best friend; her unlikely German husband, Gottfried; there's also Jinny and Martha; and finally, Tom, the smooth banker in the impeccable suit. But inevitably, before dinner is served, the upbeat ambience will shatter to pieces, as festering secrets will start surfacing in this perfect domestic war-zone. Undoubtedly, after this night, things will never be the same again.Written by

It's a succinct and simple chamber piece that works when it works but feels a little flat and forgettable, especially in hindsight.
'The Party', which tells the tale of a dinner party awkwardly gone awry, plays out in real time and relies solely on the dynamics between its seven core characters, who here deliver dialogue that mostly does that debatably grounding and realistic thing of actually being about quote unquote 'nothing' - swapping Tarantino's signature pop culture spewing style with one that focuses on the main socio-economic and political views of modern Britain (issues which have their place and need to be talked about but are here used as filler); while it is fairly entertaining for the majority of its very short run-time, once you look back on the overall narrative it feels somewhat empty (and dare I say unnecessary) especially when you know where it leaves off and how many of its seemingly insignificant plot strands are simply left dangling, though as a darkly satirical piece there are a few nice moments which stand out from the otherwise forgettable picture which is technically very well conceived to feel as though an encounter one might have at an unfortunate New Years Eve party. 6/10
