Janet (Kristen Scott Thomas) is hosting an intimate gathering of friends at her North London home to celebrate her appointment as Shadow Health Minister, while her husband, Bill (Timothy Spall), seems preoccupied. Janet’s best friend, April (Patricia Clarkson), soon arrives and others follow, some with their own dramatic news to share, but an announcement from Bill provokes a series of revelations that totally changes the mood of the party, leading Janet’s right-thinking, left-leaning friends to turn on each other.

“Potter’s first film since 2012’s Ginger and Rosa is an impressively lean affair, shot in a single location with no frills and no fuss- just an A-list cast at the top of their game. Potter looks towards Chekhov, Albee and Bunuel as inspirations, alongside such 60s Brit film classics as Karel Reisz’s Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and Brian Forbes’ The L-Shaped Room.” Mark Kermode The Guardian
