How to Have Sex

Trailer 1


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, Molly Manning Walker’s directorial debut paints a painfully familiar portrait of young adulthood, and how first sexual experiences should - or shouldn’t - play out. Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, How to Have Sex is a vibrant and authentic depiction of the agonies, ecstasies and ride-or-die glory of young female friendship.

English A sensitive film about the joy, anticipation and depth of disappointment that a teenage girl experiences while on holiday with her friends. Though at first glance it seems to be just another needless Netflix movie, it turns out to be an extraordinarily perceptive chamber drama due to the gradual revealing of the main protagonist’s emotional and psychological experience of events. Lead actress Mia McKenna-Bruce delivers a superb performance and, in particular, director Molly Manning Walker does an admirable job with her debut feature. [Cannes FF] ()

English An enjoyable coming of age drama about three girls who go on holiday to enjoy the wild party life and one of them would like to lose her virginity. The actors are likeable, the film goes by quickly but I found it a bit ordinary; there are plenty of films like this and this one doesn't stand out too much, it's a little too explicit and wild for that, but it is entertaining. 6/10.
