7.2 What happens when downtown New York's fiercest ruling party girl finds herself down and out working in a public library?

PARTY GIRL
From First Look Pictures:
"Armed with a quick wit and begged or borrowed Gaultier, Mary (Parker
Posey) struggles to pay the rent. As a hostess extraordinare Mary
packs 300 of her closest friends into her Chinatown loft for a rent
party. When her roommate, Derrick (Anthony DeSando ), splits with half
the rent, and DJ Leo (Guillermo Diaz) threatens to walk out if Mary
doesn't give him a place to stay, Mary throws open her doors to the
NYPD and ends up in jail. Desperate, she calls her godmother, Mrs.
Lindendorf (Shasha von Scherler ), who bails her out but insists. Mary
take a responsible job - as a librarian! So despite her phobia of the
Dewey Decimal System, Mary becomes a 9-5er.
"Mary's having an identity crisis. Torn between the high-drama,
high-fashioned world of nightclubs and DJs and a steady paycheck as a
librarian, she's not sure if she should grow up and settle down with
Mustafa (Omar Townsend), the handsome Lebanese neighborhood falafel
vendor, or join the ranks of Rene, the aging, strung out diva of New
York's club scene. Or should she just curl up in a fetal position and
couch potato the '90's out?

"Daisy von Scherler Mayer makes her directorial debut with PARTY GIRL
having co-written the screenplay with Harry Birckmayer who produced
the film with Stephanie Koules. Starring Parker Posey (SLEEP WITH ME,
DAZED AND CONFUSED), the supporting cast includes Sasha von Scherler,
Omar Townsend, Anthony DeSando (FEDERAL HILL, Under Suspicion), Donna
Mitchell (LESS THAN ZERO, THE ROOKIE), and Guillermo Diaz (FRESH,
CROSSING THE STICKS."

Party Girl was also a FOX Network sitcom (Mondays at 9 EST.)

"Monkeys have died trying to learn the Dewey Decimal system."
