Product Description:

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.

Plot Synopsis:

A group of friends gather for a 10-year reunion at Peter's newly inherited mansion. From sorrow to sex, marriage problems to career successes, Peter and his friends spend a fun yet emotional weekend reassessing their lives.
