Party Girl

Party Girl ★★½

Hard nineties. Parker Posey bouncing around Manhattan in ridiculous outfits, teetering out of control but somehow, nominally learning the library sciences trade at the same time? While also falling into a will-they-or-won’t-they relationship with a falafel street cart vendor? Okay, this movie is ridiculous but it’s also very, very likable, thanks largely to Parker Posey. Her once-in-a-generation screen persona is endlessly fascinating; she radiates both unbridled contemptuousness and deep sympathy. She’s entirely believable as a heedless denizen of the night who’s desperately trying to tend painful psychological wounds after losing a parent.
