'The Party's Just Beginning'

For Liusaidh (writer-director Karen Gillan), life in the Scottish city of Inverness is an endless loop of self-loathing sex, drinking, drugs and late-night chip binges. Distraction from her dead-end job and no-future prospects may have presented itself in the form of a hunky Englishman (Halt and Catch Fire's Lee Pace), but first, she'll need to exorcise a few demons and deal with the specters of traumas past. Fans of the late, lamented show Selfie and Gillan's run on Doctor Who will be happy to see that the actress-turned-filmmaker has not lost her sardonic edge or her bite. The rest of you will simply be ecstatic that she's shed her Marvel-movie make-up and found an eloquent, darkly funny way to pen a poison-tinged, lager-stained Valentine to her home town. DF
