How To Talk To Girls At Parties

Get ready for a truly out of this world adventure in… Croydon. 

John Cameron Mitchell, director of the acclaimed films Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus, 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). Crashing local punk queen Boadicea’s party, Enn discovers every boy’s dream — gorgeous foreign exchange students. When he meets the enigmatic Zan (Elle Fanning), it’s love at first sight. But these teens are, in fact, aliens from outer space, sent to Earth to prepare for a mysterious rite of passage. 

When their dark secret is revealed, the love-struck Enn must turn to Boadicea (Nicole Kidman) and her followers for help in order to save the girl he loves from certain death. 

An inventive, sweet and very funny punk-alien romcom.

How To Talk To Girls At Parties opens on Friday 11 May and tickets will be on sale soon.
