Wow. Abigail's Party - and I am the first person to comment on it? This is
certainly an interesting film. In parts it's riotously funny... I mean
laugh-out-loud funny... the characters are all obnoxious (except perhaps
Sue) with traits that'll make you thank the Lord that they are not your
neighbours or friends. The tension just rises and rises through the film...
you know it's building up to something big... by the end though it's damn
depressing. You hate these characters, you want to shout at them! But the
acting is brilliant. Alison Steadman's Beverly full of clichés and
tartiness, with a voice that gives you the creeps. Tim Stern (Laurence), the
hen-pecked husband, an uptight little weasel and an intellectual snob.
Angela (Jane Duvitski), weak and ineffectual, annoying as hell, easily-led,
yet comes through the whole thing with more strength than the others. John
Salthouse as Tony is a magnificent character, you can feel his anger brewing
underneath this quiet exterior. And then there's Susan, played by Harriet
Reynolds, whose unseen daughter Abigail is the one having the party. Sue's
the one who gets thrown in with all these misfits... poor thing. The setting
is claustrophobic, the humour is full on, sometimes though it just gets a
little too nasty for words, and leaves a rather bittersweet taste. Funny it
may be but it's a bloody painful ride, and though it's looking seriously
dated, it's still a fascinating piece of work.
