The exams are done, sod the results: three young British women look for the ultimate party action on a Greek island. A shrill, disturbing coming-of-age drama about young sexual expectations. Tara, Skye and Em are intending to have the summer of their lives. The mission of their trip to the Cretan tourist centre hotspot Malia is clear: swimming, drinking, fucking. 16-year old Tara is under particular pressure, as she’s still a virgin, a situation she is determined to change at all costs…


MOLLY MANNING-WALKER (*1993 in England) is active as a director and cameraperson. How to Have Sex is her debut film and won the prize in the section Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2023.
