You can tell a lot about a person from the way they behave at a party. That's clear in writer/director Sally Potter's new dark comedy, "The Party." She and actress Patricia Clarkson join Cheddar to discuss the making of this buzz-worthy film.

Potter reveals how the British political climate influenced the production. She says a dinner party was the perfect setting to reveal the inner and darker truths about its attendees. Clarkson explains how she got the chance to work with a filmmaker she'd admired for so long.

Then, the two weigh in on the current landscape for women in film. They speak to the significance of Greta Gerwig becoming the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director at the Oscars. Finally, Clarkson tells us what we can expect from the final season of "House of Cards."
