Critic's Pick

'Party Girl'

November 10, 1996|Peter Rainer

Mary (Parker Posey, pictured), the party girl of the 1995 "Party Girl," is the Gen X Holly Golightly of the Manhattan club scene. Unlike most of the Hollywood Gen X movies, "Party Girl" actually looks as if it were made from the inside, and has the courage of its own no-braininess. What's original about Mary's saga is that she ends up the quintessential good girl but with a twist. She's 'good' in the same way that she's 'bad.' It's all a performance, a pose. Omar Townsend (pictured) co-stars. (Showtime Thursday at 11 p.m.).
