Slyly skewering contemporary British bourgeois society, Potter’s pitch-black comic drama begins with a well-heeled group—an impressive ensemble that includes Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Cillian Murphy—gathering for what they believe to be a party at a private home, but the night is soon rocked by a string of revelations that upend their complacent self-satisfaction, turning the assembly into a battlefield with stinging, acidic exchanges as the weapons of choice. “Observant and smart… It plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punchline twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits.”—The Guardian
