  • After his father's death, the grieving Peter (Stephen Fry) invites a group of college friends, who have been separated for 10 years, to a New Year's Eve reunion at his English countryside estate. In scenes by turns funny and sad, they talk over old times, reassess their life choices, and finally come together to help each other through an unexpected crisis. Kenneth Branagh's ensemble comedy is punctuated by a classic rock soundtrack that recalls the chums' university days. A witty, heartwarming film, PETER'S FRIENDS includes fine performances by Branagh, Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, Imelda Staunton, and Rita Rudner.

    USA Today

    "...Cheerfully derivative....Branagh has a lot to work with..."
    New York Times

    "...It shows a sure feel for the material, and a stage actor's cheerful willingness to go with scenes that work..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    5 stars out of 5 -- "PETER'S FRIENDS is a beautifully scripted blend of heartfelt sentiment and humour in the face of tragedy. An exemplary character study, expertly performed."
