A24 Brings Neil Gaiman’s ‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ to the Movies This Summer


Matt Lucas looks really weird with hair. That’s something you should know while watching the trailer above. Imagine a Neil Gaiman story fell into hands of the director of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Add a group of aliens and punk rockers to the mix and stand back. You’ve got How to Talk to Girls at Parties. The film features Elle Fanning, Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas.

Here’s the official synopsis.

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 Inch, Shortbus) 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.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties comes to theaters this Summer.
