How to Talk to Girls at Parties certainly does not give away what the movie is about by its title. It’s a combination of the 1970s British punk scene and science fiction. It is a charming flick thanks to Elle Fanning and Alex Sharp.

PLOT SUMMARY


London, 1977. Enn (ALEX SHARP) is a shy suburban teenager who sneaks out to after-hours punk parties. One night, Enn and his friends meet some teens who seem like they’re from another planet; in fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. Enn falls for beautiful alien Zan (ELLE FANNING) — and into a delirious adventure that will test the limits of their love.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.5/5


This release comes with a glossy slip cover. Inside is a redemption code for the Digital HD copy. Features include an Audio Commentary with Co-Writer/Director John Cameron Mitchell & Actors Elle Fanning and Alex Sharp; a Making an Otherworldly Production; featurette and some Deleted Scenes.

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5


The film arrives on Blu-ray presented in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer and for the most part, does look quite good with sharp detail while colors are more aligned to the 1970s era motifs.

AUDIO – 4.25/5


The punk music really takes advantage of the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track while also outputting crisp and clear dialogue levels with the rears are relegated for, outside of the music, ambient noises which there was plenty of.

 


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, How to Talk to Girls at Parties certainly does not give away what the movie is about by its title. It’s a combination of the 1970s British punk scene and science fiction. It is a charming flick thanks to Elle Fanning and Alex Sharp who share some cute chemistry and Nicole Kidman is fun, in an outlandish way. The Blu-ray release offers good video and audio transfers while features were okay, though highlighted with the rare actor commentary.
