Party Girl ★★½ 1994 (R)

In the “girls just wanna have fun” category comes this spritely saga of 20-something Manhattan club gal Mary (Posey), who needs some steady income after the cops bust her for throwing an illegal rent party. So, since Mary's godmother is a librarian, she gets a job as a library clerk and discovers the wonders of the Dewey Decimal system (no, I'm not joking but presumably director Mayer is). Parker's Mary is a properly flaunting poseur but a little nightlife tends to go a long way. 94m/C VHS, DVD . Parker Posey, Omar Townsend, Anthony De Sando, Guillermo Diaz, Sasha von Scherler, Liev Schreiber; D: Daisy von Scherler Mayer; W: Harry Birckmayer, Daisy von Scherler Mayer; C: Michael Slovis; M: Anton Sanko.
