Mike Leigh: Abigail's Party
Mike Leigh, the popular English film director started his career as a theatre director and writer. The structure of his movie scenes and written works are characterised by detailed, subtle performances that use lots of experience and observation. Both his movies and his plays are contemplating about issues of private life with focus on disfunctional relationships.
The characters of Abigail’s Party are street neighbors in the suburbs. They are regular people of an age in which one starts wondering for the first time about whether they have got everything in life that they have wanted being young. They have no reason to be dissatisfied. But after one of the neighbors’ teenage daughter, Abigail throws a party for her friends, the adults get together as well to have some drinks and to get to know each other better – becoming forced to ask each other and themselves questions that they probably should not have asked.
