How to Talk to Girls at Parties - Official Trailer

It's 1977 London and teenagers are obsessed with all things punk. Several of these punk wannabes crash a party and meet a "foreign exchange student" who is from much farther away than they can imaging - let's go as far as to say other worldly.

This trailer caught my attention because it brings together the writing of Neil Gaiman (he wrote the short story this is based on) and the directing style of James Cameron Mitchell. Neil Gaiman became a household name among comic book fans in the early 90's for the iconic Sandman series. A lot of his other works have been adapted for television but movie wise he is best know for Stardust in 2007. James Cameron Mitchell is who you can thank for the the fantastic musical riot Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001). He not only directed but starred as the title character.

Throw in the 1970's punk soundtrack and I think these two will have produced a winner. Ok, a winner that will fly under the radar as an Indie hit, but still a winner. Starring Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman and Alex Sharp, How to Talk to Girls at Parties will premier in the UK May 2017 with a U.S. release date to still be announced.
