Director/Actor/Writer John Cameron Mitchell is probably best known for his work on Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and now his latest film covers a romance from the mind of master storyteller Neil Gaiman. Check out the latest trailer for How to Talk to Girls at Parties.
The synopsis goes:
An alien touring the galaxy breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon.
Elle Fanning absolutely mesmerizes in the trailer as alien girl Zan, and the movie also includes stars like Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas. I also bet that John Cameron Mitchell also has a cameo of himself somewhere in the movie.
Sci-Fi and Punk are two genres that don’t usually go together, but this film certainly looks like a fun take on the tropes. The way these romantic comedies usually go, it’s refreshing to see something that isn’t so cookie-cutter rom-com.
How to Talk to Girls at Parties hits theaters May 18.
