Summary
What's a fast-talking, under-employed New York free spirit to do when she's jailed for throwing an illegal house party? Mary cajoles her librarian godmother into bailing her out and giving her a job as a clerk at the public library. What follows is Mary's screwball-like journey from a life of late nights and hangovers to romance with a falafel vendor and a potential long-term career as a librarian. Daisy von Scherler Mayer's Party Girl is a charming and energetic throwback to '30s and '40s comedies, set amidst the thriving and vibrant club culture of '90s Lower Manhattan. Parker Posey became "the new queen of the art house" with her hilarious and captivating lead performance in what has become one of the most iconic characters and films of the '90s indie filmmaking boom. Supporting her are Guillermo Diaz, Liev Schreiber, Donna Mitchell, and Anthony DeSando
