How To Talk To Girls At Parties, is selected for Cannes Film Festival 2017

The Official Selection for the Cannes Film Festival 2017 was announced by Festival President Pierre Lescure and General Delegate Thierry Fremaux at a press conference which was live-streamed on YouTube. Among those films selected is HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES, which was written by Philippa Goslett and John Cameron Mitchell, based on the short story of the same name by Neil Gaiman. The film stars Elle Fanning, Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson and Matt Lucas. Costume design is by Sandy Powell and choreography by Lea Anderson.

The film follows an alien touring the galaxy who breaks away from her group and meets two inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon.

Besieged by an ever shifting and bewildering miscellany of inscrutable and enigmatic props, the last sorry remnants of a legendary music hall family doggedly endeavour to reconstruct fragments of misremembered routines and hazily recollected punch-lines, in a hopeless attempt to revive their all but forgotten Music Hall act.
