A24 has just posted an official trailer for John Cameron Mitchell’s punky adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties”! The story seems to veer in a somewhat different direction than Gaiman’s creepy story, with young rebel Enn, played by Alex Sharp, meeting Elle Fanning’s Zan at a party, and introducing her to a spiky, leather-clad underworld. Plus Nicole Kidman seems to be playing David Bowie? Whatever, we’re obviously onboard.

Given that Mitchell’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch is probably my favorite (non-Lord of the Rings) film, I’m just slightly invested in this, and I’m happy to see that it looks like the filmmakers have expanded the original story in exciting new directions.
How to Talk to Girls at Parties premiered at Cannes on May 21, 2017, and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 11th in the UK, and May 18th in the States!
