Directed by Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming • 2001 • United States
Starring Alan Cumming, Jennifer Jason Leigh, John Benjamin Hickey
Following a yearlong separation, a successful British novelist and his American movie-actor wife mark their sixth wedding anniversary with a gathering at their exquisite mountaintop home overlooking Los Angeles. Sally (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Joe (Alan Cumming) seem to be the perfect Hollywood couple, but they teeter on the brink of disaster, as do most of their guests. Party favors, in the form of ecstasy, bring emotions and painful truths to the surface as the collective high begins to wear off.
