It’s a rites of passage for many of teens to head a sun drench clubbing holiday. Magaluf, Laganas, Kavos are a few hot spots, in Molly Manning Walker’s How To Have Sex it’s all about having the best time of our lives in Malia.
Last month boutique distributor and streaming service MUBI announced they will release the film theatrically in the UK. Today release a short teaser Trailer Oh ah Malia! Oh ah Malia!
When it comes to these hedonistic young adult holidays I do have some experience. Not as a holidaymaker but working as a rep in the likes of Zante, Majorca, Rhodes to name a few. What happens would shock parents, many already know it’s that rite of passage. Ironically I now work for an well known airline that takes the kids to these destinations.
The film marks the director’s feature debut that made a lot of noise at it’s world premiere at Cannes this year. The film stars Mia McKenna-Bruce as one of the three girls heading to Malia, Crete in Greece. In hope of the best summer ever dance, drink , sex, however things turn sour.
Personally this looks a big switch off, kids just partying, what do you think?
Three British teenage girls go on a rites-of-passage holiday, drinking, clubbing and hooking up in what should be the best summer of their lives. As they dance their way across the sun-drenched streets of Malia, they find themselves navigating the complexities of sex, consent and self-discovery. Captured with luminous visuals and a pitch-perfect soundtrack, Manning Walker’s directorial debut paints a painfully familiar portrait of young adulthood, and how first sexual experiences should – or shouldn’t – play out.
The film also stars Shaun Thomas, Lara Peake, Enva Lewis, Laura Ambler, and Samuel Bottomley.
How To Have Sex will be released in UK and Irish cinemas from 3rd November.
