‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ Teaser: Nicole Kidman Is a Punk Queen in John Cameron Mitchell’s Cannes Premiere

Now that is punk. In advance of its debut at Cannes later this week, John Cameron Mitchell’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” has gotten an appropriately punk rock teaser trailer. And, yes, Nicole Kidman looks amazing.

For his fourth feature, Mitchell is aiming a bit lighter than usual, thanks to his and Philippa Goslett’s adaptation of a short story by Neil Gaiman. Set in a London suburb in the 1970’s, the film follows an alien girl named Zan (Elle Fanning) who falls in love with a punk teenage boy named Enn (Alex Sharp). Relatable, right?
