The first trailer for How to Have Sex, the critically acclaimed directorial debut from Molly Manning Walker, has arrived.
The film follows three British teenage girls on a "rites-of-passage" holiday for what's supposed to be the best summer of their lives.
In the teaser trailer, friends Tara (Persuasion's Mia McKenna-Bruce), Skye (Lara Peake), and Em (Enva Lewis) are seen exploring the nightlife in Malia, Greece. While they are initially seen partying and enjoying themselves, things turn serious by the end of the promo.
The official synopsis adds: "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."
The film has attracted a lot of buzz since winning the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
On Rotten Tomatoes, it currently has an impressive score of 94% from 32 reviews.
Time Out described How to Have Sex as "a wild and fun ride, whose sober moments are as important as they are uncomfortable".
Meanwhile, Variety praised the film for laying out the "minefield of sexual education and consent for a post-#MeToo generation, with a precision to its ambiguities that will draw gasps from its characters’ contemporaries and elders alike".
How to Have Sex arrives in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on November 3.
