Product Details

The film revolves around the one-upmanship of two couples, and the tension of the couples, Beverly and Laurence's barely functional marriage. As the alcohol takes effect, Beverly becomes increasingly attracted to Tony, as Laurence sits impotently by. After a tirade about art, he suffers a fatal heart attack. Within this simple framework, all of the obsessions, prejudices and petty competitiveness of the protagonists is ruthlessly exposed. British TV Channel Four's reviewer said: "Abigail's Party still ranks as the most painful hundred minutes in British comedy-drama."
