The Party (Sally Potter) / by Helen Grace

Sydney Film Festival 2017

delicious to watch this the night after the latest British election result has so spectacularly failed to give Theresa May the mandate she wanted, to sail into Brexit negotiations with any confidence. (The film was shot at the time of the Brexit referendum). But here, it's less conservatism and more left-liberal politics that is savaged with truth-telling. Star-studded, stunning script, smart cinematography to match.
