Handsome Eion Bailey stars as an alcoholic husband who has emotionally drifted away from all who care for him. When an incident prompts his friends to organize an intervention, the psychiatrist does not show up and all hell breaks loose when his friends try to lead the intervention.

Life of the Party is very much a drama, punctuated with semi-frequent comic relief. The film is credible, as it feels very real while still managing to entertain, given the very serious subject matter. It is a tale of love and friendship and hope. Bailey is an exquisite actor, showcasing his talents superbly here. Very touching and moving. Worth watching.
