Talk about a misrepresented title: You’d think this would be a silly teen comedy about awkward boys. Instead, it’s a weird sci-fi mess that takes place in 1977 London, when the punk movement was at its peak. Three high schoolers are aiming for the safety-pin lifestyle when they run across a house full of weirdos. Turns out they’re aliens, but that doesn’t stop an interspecies romance from developing (featuring Elle Fanning). Sadly, what starts as fun turns into a tedious discussion about personal freedom and love and a bunch of other useless blather. The otherwordly angle is mostly dumb and confusing, while the punk world (including Nicole Kidman as the matriarch) is noisy chaos (which is kinda appropriate). Also, the fact this movie is copyrighted 2016 reveals that even the filmmakers were hesitant about its release. Director John Cameron Mitchell has his 3rd strikeout.
