Party Girl is a new-to-me favorite recently suggested by a commenter. 1995? Parker Posey? New York? Sounds like a classic in the making. Tired of scraping by as an unemployed party promoter, Mary (Posey) tries halfheartedly to make rent on her Chinatown loft by taking a job as a library clerk. The ultimate ’90s wild child has a hard time adjusting to the world of shhh-ing, but lord, it’s fun to watch her try.

Rarely do the worlds of glam glitter heels and library science collide, so when then do, we must take note. Party Girl is a sweet little homage to the New York club-kid heyday of the 1990s and it also speaks to everyone who has ever been in a funk and needed to pull themselves up to reach their full potential — while wearing glittery heels, of course. — Amy M.
