Party Girl is an inspirational movie for any girl who feels both lost and found.

Mary is a spiritual descendant of Holly Golightly, and there's an echo, as well, of Edie Sedgwick, the late Andy Warhol superstar who moved the American-princess-on-a-bender mythology into the drug-rock era.

Party Girl aspires to be cinematic champagne but comes out tasting more like sparkling cider.

The cast is uniformly excellent -- particularly the relentlessly effervescent Posey and the imperious Sasha von Scherler, the director's mother -- and the modern take on old-fashioned romantic comedy is surprisingly effective.

This exudes trendiness at regular intervals, and otherwise manages to be reasonably charming about Manhattan's melting pot culture, but my general response was still 'Wake me when it's over.'

Party Girl wouldn't be as beloved without Parker Posey, the jewel in this indie crown.

It's great to see where Parker Posey established her indie cred in this too-cool comedy.

The part played by Parker Posey may be considered a modern version of Breakfast at Tiffany's Holly Golightly. By day, she works as a library clerk, by night she's queen of the club scenes, a camp diva blessed with cool deadpan and funkiness.

To be perfectly honest, Party Girl follows a fairly predictable narrative; the quality lies almost exclusively in the details.

Independent films tend to favor low-key realism in their lead performances, but Party Girl has a real movie star turn at its center.

The screenplay, by Ms. Mayer and Harry Birckmayer, has its occasionally funny lines, but not nearly enough to certify the film as a hip urban comedy in tune with the cutting edge of downtown New York.

Spunky and sassy drama about a young woman who tries to create herself anew using discipline and devotion.

If bad behaviour and smugness were truly charming, Party Girl might be as much fun as it imagines it is. And Madonna might even have a decent movie career.
