Director: John Cameron Mitchell | 102-mins. | UK/USA | 2017 | Comedy/Romance/Sci-Fi | TRAILER

The absurdly unique genres of romance-horror-comedy-sci-fi are splattered all over John Cameron Mitchell’s ludicrous HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES, making for an incredibly bold, eccentric, and completely bananas time at the movies. Directed with unbridled energy, the film tells a tale adapted from a Neil Gaiman short story that tackles the burgeoning punk culture and anti-conformity attitudes of 1970s England. The story contains a coming-of-age premise as we follow the young Enn (Alex Sharp), whose late-night gallivanting leads him to the alien Zan (perennial it-girl Elle Fanning) with whom he explores a bizarro underground alien punk scene. The acid-trip nature of Enn and Zan’s adventure is destined for cult-movie status as the collusion of musical numbers, intergalactic cannibals, gross-out body horror, and a costumed Nicole Kidman will undoubtedly deliver cinematic imagery you won’t soon forget.

About the Director:
John Cameron Mitchell hasn’t directed a movie in seven years, with his returning achievement HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES being his fourth movie in his career. His films HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (2001), SHORTBUS (2006), and the uncharacteristically somber RABBIT HOLE (2010) signal Mitchell’s interest in extraordinary human behaviour. HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES reunites Mitchell with Nicole Kidman, the star of RABBIT HOLE, who has praised Mitchell for providing unique roles for middle-aged women.
