Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 2018
Plays Character Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Dot Halford in The Ice Storm 1997
Character Hosts “Swinger” Parties
More accurately back in the 1970s, it was called a “Key Party.” Allison’s character (Dot Halford) hosts these parties where married couples swap sexual partners by having wives select other husbands’ keys from a bowl.
Adapted from the novel of the same name, Rick Moody wrote this. An excerpt from the book below:
Well, Dot said slurring faintly, teetering on her pumps. Well, we have a little business to attend to now. So if you’re going to stay, let’s please gather in the living room now.
And she led the way.
The key party lacked a comprehensive system of manners. There were things still to be negotiated. No one knew quite what to do, how to follow. Most of those who had no intention of playing had already left.
