Dir. Molly Manning Walker, UK, 2023, 98 mins. Cast. Mia McKenna-Bruce, Shaun Thomas, Lara Peake.

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, 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.

With intro and post-screening Bad Sex Writing workshop with Plymouth Laureate of Words, Laura Horton on Saturday 18 November (film at 2pm, workshop at 3.55pm).
