Elle Fanning Stars in How to Talk to Girls at Parties: Listen to Neil Gaiman read his short story #book2movie

The trailer for How to Talk to Girls at Parties just hit the internet and it’s—how to put this—out of this world (you can watch it below) but you know what I always say: Read it Before you See it.

If you want to read it I shared Neil Gaiman’s short story How to Talk to Girls at Parties last year along with the movie’s logline: 
An alien touring the galaxy breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon

What the punk?!

That alien who breaks away is Zan, played by Elle Fanning in the film, in which Nicole Kidman stars as Queen Boadicea, the leader of Zan’s faction. 

Better yet. Don’t read it! Let the acclaimed author Neil Gaiman read it to you.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties is set for release on May 18th —I hope I remember to add it to this year’s list of movies based on books—and also stars Ruth Wilson and Alex Sharp. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell, the wild mind who brought you Hedwig & the Angry Inch, in How to Talk to Girls at Parties the co-writer/director takes a deep dive into the punk rock scene.

Are you a Neil Gaiman fan? Does this adaptation look like a promising rendition of the short story? I’m all ears.
