A24 released the official trailer for How to Talk to Girls at Parties, starring Elle Fanning, Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, and Ruth Wilson, that tells the story of a boy falling in love with a girl in 1970s London. The movie which is based on Neil Gaiman‘s short story of the same name, is directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus).
From the raucous dual imaginations of fantasy laureate Neil Gaiman (“American Gods,” CORALINE) and glamrock multi-hyphenate John Cameron Mitchell (HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, SHORTBUS) comes the electrifying and singular pop extravaganza film, HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES.
Enn (Tony Award-winner 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 teenage 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.
How to Talk to Girls at Parties will be released on May 11th in the UK and on May 18th in the US.
