Neil Gaiman’s science fiction comedy short story has been adapted by screenwriter Philippa Goslett and directed by John Cameron Mitchell – making his first movie since 2006’s Shortbus. Some nervy teenage boys show up at a party in, amazingly, Croydon, and are tongue-tied when it comes to chatting up the opposite sex. But then they discover that the “exchange student” girls at the party are from a different planet. Nicole Kidman stars.
