About the film:
Mary (Parker Posey) is a NYC nightclub scenester and social butterfly who rules the underground party scene. By day, however, she lacks purpose and enough funds to make rent. When her aunt gets her a job at the local library, Mary initially waffles under the constraints of the system, but then unexpectedly flourishes as a librarian (and does a lot of growing up along the way).
Party Girl (1995) features a laundry list of other notable actors, including Liev Schreiber, Guillermo Diaz (Scandal), and John Ventimiglia (The Sopranos), and is brilliantly shot on location in pre-gentrification Lower Manhattan. The beloved coming-of-age comedy was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival.
