LACMA | Bing Theater

2018, 71 minutes, B&W, DCP | Written by Sally Potter; directed by Sally Potter; with Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Timothy Spall

Includes a conversation with writer/director/actor Sally Potter

Writer/director Sally Potter (Orlando, The Tango Lesson, Ginger & Rosa) returns to the big screen for her newest film, a comedy of manners about a group of primarily ill-mannered people. All sorts of hitherto closely held secrets are revealed at a gathering meant to celebrate several events for a small group of intensely opinionated and equally voluble friends—the ascension to a cabinet post for the host, Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas), and impending parenthood for Jinny (Emily Mortimer) and her partner, Martha (Cherry Jones). As more information is revealed—or rather, unleashed—the party goes further off the rails. The revelers include Janet’s husband, Bill (Timothy Spall), her fast-trigger embittered friend April (Patricia Clarkson), guru (Bruno Ganz), and the profusely sweaty Tom (Cillian Murphy). The filmmaker keeps the dialogue and the characters in motion in a scenario where the conversation moves from imminent birth to death. And the talented Potter will be in attendance for a post-screening conversation.
