The Party’s Just Beginning is released in the UK

Karen Gillan’s debut feature The Party’s Just Beginning was released in UK cinemas on the 1st of December and will be available on demand on the 11th of December.

In a bleak Inverness midwinter, Luisaidh (Gillan) is careering off the rails after the suicide of her best friend. She medicates her misery with joyless sex, chips and a belief in the power of positive drinking. Surrounded by bittersweet memories, she struggles to find someone to talk to or some reason to make life worthwhile at the most stressful time of the year. A poignant, plaintive tale of loss, grief and survivor’s guilt with a terrific ensemble cast.

The Party’s Just Beginning had its world premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival on the 24th of February 2018. Karen Gillan was nominated at the British Independent Film Awards 2018 (BIFA) for Best Debut Screenwriter and the film was nominated at the BAFTA Scotland awards for Best Feature film that same year.
