How to Talk to Girls at Parties: Film Review

How to Talk to Girls at Parties was one of the films I was most excited to watch at the London Film Festival, but I wasn’t alone and every public screening sold out, so I had wait until now to see it. Unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to expectations, even though I had a lot of fun with it.
