Karen Gillan's 'The Party's Just Beginning' Acquired by The Orchard


  • The Party's Just Beginning, a film written by, directed by, and starring Karen Gillan, was acquired by The Orchard after making its U.S. debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it was well-received.

  • The film is a passion project that took Karen several years to write and finance. It is her feature directorial debut.

  • Plot summary: Liusaidh (Karen Gillan) is a sharp-witted, foul-mouthed, heavy-drinking twenty-something who is still reeling from a recent loss. Living with her parents in the remote Scottish Highlands, she spends most nights boozing at the local pub and embarks on what she assumes—perhaps rightly—will be yet another short-term fling when she hooks up with an out-of-towner (Lee Pace) who is going through a midlife crisis. At the same time, a wrong number leads Liusaidh to an anonymous connection with an old man who is grappling with his own end-of-life questions and regrets. These three characters, each at their own crossroads, search for answers—together and independently—in the cold northern landscape, under fleeting glimpses of the Northern Lights.

  • The Orchard plans on releasing the film this fall.
