Our monthly gastronomic feature followed by a meal in the IFI Café Bar.
The menu for October includes:
Meat Dish- Shepherd’s Pie (minced lamb with a cheesy mash)
Fish Dish- Kedgeree (a fish, egg and rice curry dish)
Veg Wellington- (wild mushroom and mixed veg in a puff pastry with a carrot puree)
October’s pairing of a new release and a specially devised main course menu will be Sally Potter’s The Party.
A social gathering to celebrate the promotion of Janet to the role of shadow health secretary quickly descends into farce in Sally Potter’s deliciously tart black comedy of manners.
The conversation soon becomes awkward and relations turn sour as alcohol-fuelled revelations come thick and fast. With a cast led by Kristin Scott Thomas and Timothy Spall, The Party keeps the tension high and the one-liners flowing as the ensemble becomes increasingly unhinged.
