Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) has just been appointed to a key ministerial position in the shadow cabinet - the crowning achievement of her political career. She and her husband Bill (Timothy Spall) plan to celebrate this with a few close friends. As the guests arrive at their home in London the party takes an unexpected turn when Bill suddenly makes some explosive revelations that take everyone present by surprise. Love, friendships and political convictions are soon called into question in this hilarious comedy of tragic proportions. From acclaimed British filmmaker Sally Potter, this witty, sharp and very funny new comedy features a star studded cast that includes Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Timothy Spall.

  • Don’t bother

    This looked so good, however. Do not bother I can not be polite enough in type to explain how BAD this was, I have no idea who thought it maybe a good idea to film in black and white. Sillian Murphy was fantastic in Peaky Blinder please if you do read any reviews do not associate your self with this type of rubbish you are by far a better actor than bothering with this rubbish.
