Parker Posey's first leading role and the first feature film to premiere online, launching its signal from right here in Seattle!
Part of our Pocketful of Posey film series.
PARTY GIRL tells the story of Mary (Posey), a fashionable NYC nightclub scenester and social butterfly who rules the underground party scene. By day, however, she lacks purpose and enough funds to make rent. When her godmother bails her out of jail after throwing an illegal rave and gets her a job at the local library, Mary initially waffles under the constraints of the system, but then unexpectedly flourishes as a librarian (and does a lot of growing up along the way).
Parker Posey herself was on-hand in downtown Seattle to push the button that launched the movie’s historic Internet broadcast, and the movie was concurrently screened at the Egyptian theater as part of that year’s Seattle International Film Festival.
“[Posey] obviously has the stuff, and generates wacky charm.” Roger Ebert
“What makes it delicious fun is Posey, a party girl for the ages.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
