Tragicomedy directed by Sally Potter in which Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) hosts a house party to celebrate her appointment as the Shadow Health Minister and drama ensues.
Provides examples of:
- All Lesbians Want Kids: Played for Drama. Jinny is thrilled at the prospect of becoming a mum, but Martha is more ambivalent and worried about losing Jinny to their children.
- Deliberately Monochrome
- No Party Given: Although it's heavily implied that Janet is a Labour MP, the party name is never explicitly stated.
- Your Cheating Heart: Janet and Bill have both been having an affair without the other realising, and with the same person, no less.
