Zoe subtly weaved layers of Nora’s character in the story and it’s this subtle complexity which Parker plays to perfection that is the crown Jewel of the film.
Having said that I have not yet seen her entire catalogue and am about to embark on the sequel to Henry Fool.
My recent Marathon , prompted by Davides article,consisted of four films;
The house of yes showcases Parkers dramatic talent as she expertly plays the role of an hysterical sister ‘Jackie-O’ Pascal, in the adapted for screen version alongside her brother Josh Hamilton (Patrick Wilson).
Parker Posey (Margaret Burre), stars alongside Lisa Kudrow Alanna Ubach and Toni Colette as temps in a large organization. The film is about the fragility of female friendships and has a whimsical demeanor about it despite it’s depressing subject matter.
Is the most complex of the four and at over two hours running time can be a little draining to watch. Parker is not the main lead in the film and although I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the sequel it can be a laborious slog for those without a keen interest in her work.
Party girl is not Posey’s finest work. She does shine in the film as the lustrous happy go lucky Mary but to be frank the story line was weak as was everything else in the film apart from some of the acting. Don’t be afraid to give this one a miss and check out Dazed and Confused or SubUrbia instead.
