How to Talk to Girls at Parties – Trailer 1 – Elle Fanning

How to Talk to Girls at Parties How to Talk to Girls at Parties, from John Cameron Mitchell, director of the acclaimed Hedwig and the Angry Inch, takes us to an exotic and unusual world: suburban London in the late 70s.

Under the spell of the Sex Pistols, every teenager in the country wants to be a punk, including our hopeless hero Enn (Alex Sharp). Hearing the local punk Queen Boadicea (Nicole Kidman) is throwing a party, Enn crashes the fun and discovers every horny boy’s dream; gorgeous foreign exchange students. When he meets the enigmatic Zan (Elle Fanning), it’s lust at first sight.

But these girls have come a lot further than America. They are, in fact, aliens from another galaxy, sent to Earth to prepare for a mysterious rite of passage. When the dark secret behind the rite is revealed, our galaxy-crossed lover Enn must turn to Boadicea and her punk followers for help in order to save the alien he loves from certain death. The punks take on the aliens on the streets of London, and neither Enn nor Zan’s universe will ever be the same again.

This trailer had a lot going on in it, but not a lot that I found must-see.
