Lionsgate and Picturehouse Entertainment are delighted to announce the UK home entertainment release of Sally Potter's latest film, The Party, on 19th February.

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.

Written and directed by Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Sally Potter (Orlando, Rage, The Tango Lesson, Ginger & Rosa) the film is brought to life by an outstanding cast that includes Academy-Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (The Green Mile, Pieces Of April, Shutter Island), who was awarded Best Supporting Actress at the 2017 British Independent Film Awards; Bruno Ganz (Downfall, The Reader); Primetime Emmy winner Cherry Jones (24, Ocean's Twelve); Emily Mortimer (Hugo, The Sense Of An Ending); Cillian Murphy (Dunkirk, Free Fire); Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour, The English Patient); and BAFTA winner Timothy Spall (The King's Speech, Mr Turner).

Witty, sharp and funny, The Party is available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download. Details
