Cosmic party comedy featuring Nicole Kidman

John Cameron Mitchell (‘Shortbus’, ‘Rabbit Hole’) has adapted the crazy sci-fi short story ‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ – starring Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning.

Aliens meet punks in Mitchell’s cosmic party comedy, which is just as mad as it is silly. It is sure to be one of the most madcap entries in this year’s PIX programme.

A group of latex-dressed aliens, who look like adult versions of Teletubbies, have occupied an empty house where they cultivate free sex and bodysnatching. The baffled punk Enn falls head over heals in love with the beautiful alien Zan (Elle Fanning), and then the film just rolls, freewheeling.

How about an intergalactic love story with equal parts nostalgia and DIY anarchy? If you’re in, then go to Dagmar on October 8th at 7.00pm or catch it on October 11th, 4.30pm at Cinemateket.
