The Anniversary Party (2001)

Sobre o filme

The film takes place in the course of one night. The Anniversary Party casts its gaze that is true and at the same time comical, although at times sarcastic, on a group of friends. The couple consisting of author Joe (Alan Cumming) and actress Sally Therrian (Jennifer Jason Leigh) decide to throw a party to commemorate a series of happy events in their marriage: the six-year anniversary, the decision to start a family, and reconciliation after a year apart. They invite their closest friends and, to avoid being sued for disturbing the peace, they invite their awkward fault-finding neighbors. An unexpected present, however, involves the party in an uncontrolled spiral and unleashes an outburst of painful confessions. What was originally planned to be a celebration, becomes a biting analysis of a marriage bordering on an abyss.
