It's intense.... ly intense

It's certainly not a comedy, even coming from NE Scotland. It's really engaging!! It's not obvious where the story is leading or how it should turn out. Karen is amazing and her cast is very well chosen. Think of it as more real life... not cliche'd... Eastenders (over dramatised). Enjoy it!!! Ps i love the fact the reviews are honest for once!

Do not know why this comes up as a comedy. Drama yes!

From the first drunk karaoke scene I thought this looked like a good comedy as I am a big fan of UK films.. It turned out to be about a girl who loses a friend who takes their lives and she sees him where ever she goes.. It's basically night clubbing.. random encounters followed by a kebab.. Apart from the good acting and music I don't know how I watched this till the end where it just finishes and you are left to ask yourself? Is that it ?

An assured debut from Karen Gillan

I'm not going to spoil anything here, but I will say that Karen Gillan's "The Party's Just Beginning" isn't a perfect film. There's a lot of stuff going on and not all of it gets a resolution. But it's still very well acted (Gillan's best performance yet), well written, and beautifully directed. It's a very confident debut and Gillan's voice really shines through. I've seen reviews angry at the film, saying that it "exploits" people who identify as transgender or that she "exploits" suicide, which I think is just ridiculous. I really believe that all of that is just down to the fact that Gillan tried to include a lot of different topics and themes in this film. Some are included unsuccessfully, and the film can feel a bit overstuffed, but in my opinion, most of the themes have a good pay off. Without spoiling anything, I can say that The Party's Just Beginning is an incredibly assured debut. It's got a strong cast, a socially relevant, poignant, and funny script, and even when it doesn't land every punch, The Party's Just Beginning is still an admirable, emotional, and immensely enjoyable directorial debut that marks Karen Gillan as an actor and a director to watch. 9 out of 10.
