The Party

So tonight was the first night of our cities film festival, so that meant there was freezing rain and wind.  The largest cinema was packed with more middle aged people than are usually allowed out on a week night.

We saw The Party, an English comedy about a group of people who gather to celebrate some good news.  It was an ensemble piece including Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall, Kristen Scott Thomas and a couple of others.

For me it felt a bit like a stage play and I felt like everybody was over acting  which made me somewhat annoyed, although most of the middle aged loves in the audience were laughing throughout.  3/5.

Disappointing, with that cast.
