8. Party Girl
“Party Girl” was the opening film of the ‘Un Certain Regard’ section at Cannes, where it went on to win the prestigious ‘Camera d’Or’ award. “Party Girl” is a story of an ageing nightclub hostess who decides to turn her life around by getting married to a regular customer. “Party Girl” is a semi-autobiographical story of director Samuel Theis’s mother, who interestingly plays herself in the movie. This is a very personal film for the actress and the filmmakers and the ‘Camera d’Or’ award gives us hope that it will show in the final film.
