This Michael Winterbottom satire of the mega-rich is centred around the build up to a spectacular 60th birthday party in an exclusive hotel on the Greek island of Mykonos.
This is a breezy, funny, unsubtle satire-melodrama all about the moral squalor of the super-rich. They are epitomised by a fictional high-street fashion mogul called Sir Richard “Greedy” McCreadie (Steve Coogan) as he prepares for a monumentally tasteless Roman-themed 60th birthday party on the plutocrats’ island of Mykonos. McCreadie has just suffered a nightmare of bad publicity following a catastrophic performance in front of a parliamentary select committee, and all the celebs are starting to pull out of his bash.
The great cast includes Isla Fisher, Asa Butterfield, Stephen Fry, David Mitchell and Sophie Cookson.
