Max Minghella (The Handmaid’s Tale, Horns) makes his feature directing debut in Teen Spirit, a music fueled drama about Violet (Elle Fanning), a teenager who dreams of becoming a top flight singer. Along with the help of Fanning, the project also features music penned by such pop music luminaries as Robyn, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Tegan & Sara.
There is a smidge of Fanning singing Robyn’s hit tune “Dancing on My Own” in the trailer, and one would assume she will showcase her pipes throughout the narrative. Minghella’s late father Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley) was a masterful filmmaker, and it’s great to see him follow in his footsteps. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Teen Spirit, co-starring Rebecca Hall, opens nationwide April 5.
