  'THE PARTY' COMEDY
OF TRAGIC PROPORTIONS
The movie was shot in just two weeks!
Not much to end the week with, people, just trailers and posters for two new drama movies coming straight from the United Kingdom. The first one a mix of comedy and drama THE PARTY both directed and written by Sally Potter in her first new film in almost five years. Starring Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall, Kristin Scott Thomas THE PARTY is actually a comedy wrapped around a tragedy. It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor. The movie should hit British cinemas October 13th!



  'THAT GOOD NIGHT'
JOHN HURT'S LAST MOVIE
Poignantly, this is John Hurt's last movie
The first trailer and poster have also been released for British drama THAT GOOD NIGHT which already did its round around movie festivals this summer but does not yet have a cinematic release date. Starring John Hurt (in his last movie before he died this January), Max Brown, Charles Dance, it follows Ralph (John Hurt), a once famous screenwriter, who is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has two final missions: to be reconciled to his son, Michael (Max Brown), and, secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his wife, Anna (Sofia Helin), as he goes "into that good night".

Wasn't Mommy Dearest supposed to be a comedy as well? I didn't find humor in that one or in The Party either.

it is so very creepy that Hurt played a man who knows he is dying and wants to clear all his debts, as his last role before he died too

absolutely! I wonder if it prepared him for his own demise?

"The Party" strikes me as being cutting political satire. Looks good! And "That Good Night" looks excellent too -- the line about Dylan Thomas made me laugh!

DEZMOND said...

lots of laughs in both of them, even the second one ain't a comedy, methinks

Theresa Mahoney said...

I didn't know that. Creepy indeed!
