The Anniversary Party

anniversaryJennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming write and direct a de facto home movie about a bunch of Hollywood industry types and their informal party in the hills. Lots of "oh this must be what movie stars are like when no one's watching" moments, but then they take Ecstasy, souls get bared, resentments boil over- a dark mess. It is kinda surreal to see Kevin Kline & Phoebe Cates & their kids play fictional versions of themselves. (Kendall Square Cinema)
