Here the talented Beresford ("Breaker Morant") provides a biting, unvarnished look at the state of affairs between the sexes, and it ain't all pretty. His gift for highly personal, intimate film-making makes us all flies on the wall, and what we see unfold is by turns comically human and undeniably sad. Importantly, the ring of truth is maintained throughout. Though the characters may not remember what happened in the morning, we certainly will. Sure, it's not all fun and games, but this "Party" is still worth attending.
