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) are celebrating with a few close friends when the party takes an unexpected turn, as Bill suddenly makes some explosive revelations. Love, friendships and political convictions are soon called into question in this hilarious comedy of tragic proportions from director Sally Potter.

Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.
