How to Talk to Girls at Parties

From the raucous dual imaginations of fantasy laureate Neil Gaiman (“American Gods,” Coraline) and glam-rock multi-hyphenate John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry InchShortbus) comes the electrifying and singular pop extravaganza film, How To Talk To Girls At Parties.  Enn (Alex Sharp) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle Fanning), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenager who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn. Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love.

UK | USA, 2017, 102 minutes, Rated R, Directed by John Cameron Mitchell

  • “(A) loony romantic comedy. Ms. Fanning has an otherworldly glow that’s exactly right…Mr. Mitchell shows his talent for imbuing outré sex with a joyful, youthful innocence. A kitschy, spaced-out oddity.”

    – Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • “A wondrously bizarre affair…one of the oddest and most original British films of the year.”

    – Geoffrey Macnab, INDEPENDENT (UK)
  • “(A) sweetly daffy picture about coming of age in punk-era England.”

  • “Full of great energy and ambition…shares some of the best elements of Mitchell’s previous work.”

    – Brian Tallerico, ROGEREBERT.COM
  • “Gloriously bonkers, with a charming central performance from Elle Fanning.”

    – Matthew Bond, DAILY MAIL (UK)
  • “The creative collision of author Neil Gaiman and the director of ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ is a match made in bizarro world heaven.”
