John Cameron Mitchell adapts Neil Gaiman’s short-story, How To Talk To Girls At Parties, into a feature length spectacle full of punk, camp, and romantic entanglements. Elle Fanning plays Zan, an alien, who falls for earth boy Enn (Alex Sharp) against her colony’s wishes. Together they set out to prove their love will prevail against any obstacles in this cult-film-in-the-making, featuring an unforgettable cameo from Nicole Kidman as a punk empress.
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.

“[Mitchell’s] giddy, knowingly camp direction has a sort of glitter-stick DIY spirit that keeps the movie aloft…” – Entertainment Weekly
