“Abigail’s Party” features Beverly (Alison Steadman) the bitingly funny hostess of a dainty evening party at which her husband has the ultimate bad taste of having a heart attack on her new living room carpet. Unable to decide which is more important, her dying husband or her new, very expensive carpet, Abigail must come to terms with where her true priorities lay. One of Mike Leigh’s greatest works, “Abigail’s Party” reaches a moment when the unbearable and the hopeless fuse to create an explosion of incredible humor and tremendous insight into the state of human affairs.
