Hedwig and the Angry Inch director John Cameron Mitchell returns with a shape-shifting, mind-blowing adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s short story, charting the impact of punk on an unsuspecting Britain.

Set in the London suburb of Croydon during the Silver Jubilee year of 1977, fanzine editor Enn meets Zan, a mesmerizing member of an alien cult who has taken human form to complete a mission on planet Earth. It’s love at first stare, and soon Enn and Zan are embarking on a misadventure to learn the basics of punk and how to succeed in anarchy without really trying.

Featuring Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman in a massively enjoyable role as Boadicea the punk queen, How to Talk to Girls at Parties makes for a perfect alien/punk mashup as these kids lust for life and search for the origins of love.
