Set on New Year's Eve, 1992, each person comes to Peter's estate for one last new years in his house, since Peter's father died. It has been 10 years since they had all been together, performing a small cabaret show to anyone who would actually want them there to perform. Now, all the friends have been married, movied away, or in destructive (or no) relationships. During the course of the weekend, they all rediscover one another as well as discover who they are. With an pwerful script, setting, and cast of characters, Peter's Friends is one of the best. I completely recommend you see it and enjoy yourselves. It's brilliant, so have fun!!!
That alone makes the movie worth seeing. The men and women in this film are going through a lot of stuff, not the least of which wishing they could go back to the time when life seemed to make sense- when they were all together and much closer as friends. But they can only move forward: they can only accept the degree to which they are products of their environment, and how that degree is much smaller than what they would like to believe- in fact, to what degree they constructed their environments through their choices in life. One couple, married, still grieving the death of a child, must face the anger at each other and themselves- and God- before it destroys their marriage like a cancer; and the husband leads the way. One woman must face how she manipulates men into severing their relationships with other women for her, only to blow them off dazed and brokenhearted when there is nothing left to stand in the way of her committing herself to them, including their old lives. Another must come to terms with his sexuality enough to share it with his friends, one of which has fallen in love with him, for all the wrong reasons. The comedy in this film is there by necessity I think moreso than artifice or decoration; if you don't laugh at times at how confusing and hard life can be you can't live it.Read more ›
