Dir: Sally Potter | UK | 2017 | 71 mins
Cast: Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall

British director and screenwriter Sally Potter’s (Orlando) political tragicomedy features a spectacular cast including Kristin Scott Thomas, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy and Timothy Spall. Janet (Scott Thomas) has received the promotion of a lifetime and celebrates by hosting close friends. But as they arrive, her husband (Spall) makes a shocking announcement leading to a cascade of explosive revelations as their shared illusions go up in smoke. Described by Potter as an anti-Brexit statement about a ‘broken England’, it’s a savage satire of the middle-class, exploring the deeper truths behind seemingly liberal convictions with insight and a killer wit.
