How to Have Sex is a vibrant and authentic depiction of the agonies, ecstasies and ride-or-die glory of young female friendship, from rising British filmmaker Molly Manning Walker.

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.

Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, this incendiary film combines the sensory pleasures of contemporary Gen-Z and millennial filmmaking with profound empathy and nuanced storytelling, creating an experience that is both technically euphoric and emotionally undeniable.

A MUBI Release.
