Gotta love some of the odd movies that come out of A24 Pictures. In the latest film from director John Cameron Mitchell, we follow a young guy, Enn, and his strange relationship with an alien — I mean girl — named Zan. They meet at some weird, cult-like gathering, and immediately, she and Enn strike up a rapport that leads them on an unforgettable adventure (or at least, I assume).

The film is based on the short story of the same name from writer Neil Gaiman, and those weird aspects that Gaiman is known for seem to be in full effect in this trailer.


Below is the official trailer for How to Talk to Girls at Parties:

“From the raucous dual imaginations of fantasy laureate Neil Gaiman (“American Gods,” CORALINE) and glam-rock multi-hyphenate John Cameron Mitchell (HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, SHORTBUS) comes the electrifying and singular pop extravaganza film, HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES. Enn (Alex Sharp) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle Fanning), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenager who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn. Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love.”
