The Party's Over

'So shocking, it could only be told.' Well, not exactly shocking (but that's my generation's tolerance and immunity to debauchery and social demeanours) but I'm glad it was told. Every era has to end - just look at the cocaine fuelled Bright Young Things and the 1990s boozehounds, the YBAs. So as we see with the film poster, cracks are beginning to show in the endless party lifestyle of the adolescence in the 60s. It just takes one occurrence hinting at the darker side of life to bring them crashing back down to the realities of their own responsibilities, boundaries and overall existence. Not the most convincing acting but a very gripping plot to a low budget social thriller.
