Violet is a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack, Teen Spirit is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.
Programmer’s Notes: Much like a music video, Teen Spirit has plenty of spirit and style and a soundtrack to match. Elle Fanning gives us a performance that shows off her pop star sensibilities. We couldn’t stop cheering.
