What's a fast-talking, under-employed New York free spirit to do when she's jailed for throwing an illegal house party? 

Mary (Parker Posey) 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" (Michael Musto, Vanity Fair) 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 (Scandal), Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Donna Mitchell (The Ice Storm) and Anthony DeSando (Kiss Me, Guido). 

In addition to it's witty and quotable screenplay by von Scherler Mayer and Harry Birckmayer, Party Girl is rightfully beloved for it's stacked soundtrack, which includes Tom Tom Club, Run-DMC, Deee-lite, Carl Craig and Ultra-Naté, as well as Mary's stacked wardrobe, which includes pieces by Vivienne Westwood, Todd Oldham, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel. 

Party Girl had its finger on the pulse when released in 1995 and, decades later, it's revered as a loving and effervescent cinematic record of a very special time and place in New York City's history. Previously only available in aged standard definition masters, Party Girl has now been restored in 4K from its original 16mm camera negative.
