Don's Party ★★★ 1976

A rather dark comedy focusing on Australian Yup-pie-types who decide to watch the election results on TV as a group. A lot more goes on at this party, however, than talk of the returns. Sexual themes surface. Cast members turn fine performances, aided by top-notch script and direction. 90m/C VHS, DVD .
