In the '70s, punk-loving teen Enn (Alex Sharp) attempts to crash a party in the London suburbs. He ends up at the wrong house where he encounters a kooky, conformist cult, which includes the naive Zan (Elle Fanning). They hit it off before Enn learns that she is actually a repressed humanoid alien on Earth to complete a fatal ritual. Enn appeals to the punk scene to help both emotionally and physically liberate the lady he's fallen for. Directed by John Cameron MItchell. Based on the short story of the same name by Neil Gaiman.

Hmmmmm Baaaaaaaad
24 May 2018 | by shil0500See all my reviews

How they convinced 3 of the hottest leading ladies (Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson) to be in this non sensible dribble is beyond me. I fully expected a great movie & was only wondering how I could get my 1 hour & 42 minutes of my life back. I thought a Clockwork Orange (Great Movie) was the weirdest & strangest movie I had ever seen. Nope This Tops the List fellow Travelers. As a 1/2 hour short story with the ending it had, OK Fine it would have been tolerable. If you must see, make sure your batteries in your remote & fast forward is working. Unfortunately mine were dead or at least that's what I told myself for not using it, lol
