News   John Cameron Mitchell Film How to Talk to Girls at Parties, Starring Nicole Kidman, Released on Digital and Streaming Platforms
 
The sci-fi romance from Hedwig creator and star Mitchell centers on a young alien girl who falls for a punk in 1970s London.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties, the new screen project from Hedwig and the Angry Inch star and creator John Cameron Mitchell, is now available to rent and own on all digital platforms.

The film is adapted from Neil Gaiman’s short story about a London punk rocker and an alien girl who fall in love. Mitchell directed and co-wrote the film with Philippa Gosslett.

Set in 1970’s London, the music-filled punk rock film stars Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tony Award winner Alex Sharp, Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, Olivier Award winner Ruth Wilson, and Elle Fanning.

Here’s how it’s characterized, “Enn (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 (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.”
