School’s out and best friends Tara, Em and Skye are ready for the best summer ever before they have to face the reality of exam results and the next chapter of their lives as young adults. Along with hundreds of other British teens, the girls travel to Malia, a party town on the Greek island of Crete. They waste no time in pursuing the primary objectives of their trip: clubbing, binge-drinking and hooking up. But as they dance their way across the sun-drenched streets of Malia, the three friends find themselves navigating the complexities of sex, consent and self-discovery, and experiences that test friendships the girls thought would last forever.

Why You Should See This Film

Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, as well as three British Independent Film Awards, two London Critics Circle Film Awards and multiple other accolades, How to Have Sex is a vibrant and heart-achingly authentic depiction of the agonies and ecstasies of young female friendship. Writer-director Molly Manning Walker is also a working cinematographer, and her keen eye for filmmaking craft and luminous visuals shines through. The film’s portrayal of teenage social dynamics is even-handed and empathetic, and the soundtrack is pitch-perfect featuring thumping club anthems from Fred again, Romy, Flume and more.

Content warning: high-impact themes, sexual violence.
