Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning Go Punk in ‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ Trailer

How To Talk To Girls At Parties was somewhat of a smash hit at this year’s Cannes film festival. Since then, the Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning drama has taken a back seat while Nicole Kidman is busy showing up in what seems like a dozen other awesome projects.

John Cameron Mitchell’s film is getting a U.K. release date, but still not one state side. Either way, here’s a trailer, and it looks like a blast:

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. When the punks take on the aliens, neither Enn’s nor Zan’s universe will ever be the same again.


Stay tuned for updates on a US release date.
