A24 has released a series of brief but enticingly strange and funny teasers for How To Talk To Girls At Parties. Consider what’s featured: Alien Elle Fanning being introduced to the ways of punk; Nicole Kidman, evoking Bowie, leading a revolution; tons of latex. Put all three together and it looks like a romantic comedy coming-of-age story along the lines of Sing Street, just mixed with some freaky sci-fi body horror. And if that’s not intriguing enough, it comes from Hedwig And The Angry Inch’s John Cameron Mitchell and is based on a short story by Neil Gaiman.
In the clip above, Fanning’s character Zan learns what humans like to do from Enn (Alex Sharp) and frolicking ensues.
And here we get a taste of the movie’s wilder elements as Enn and his pal witness some extraterrestrial oddities. The movie premieres at Cannes. It doesn’t have an official release date yet.
