Hull Film Festival: Teen Spirit
Fri 5th Jul 2019 @ 6:30 pm£6 – £8
Max Minghella | 2019 | UK / USA | 93 mins | Cert 12A | English language | Drama/Music
The directorial debut of actor Max Minghella (The Handmaid’s Tale) tells the story of how an aspiring singer gathers the courage to come out of her shell with a bang.
Seventeen-year-old Violet (Elle Fanning) lives with her mother (Agnieszka Grochowska) on a small farm on the Isle of Wight. Her days are spent doing chores, waiting tables, and attending secondary school, where she keeps to herself. But in her free time — spent alone in her room, in the fields with her beloved horse, or at an under-attended open-mic night — Violet surrenders to song. She’s a naturally gifted singer for whom pop stardom might not be mere fantasy.
When Vlad (Zlatko Buric), a once-celebrated opera singer, hears Violet, he knows she’s something special and declares himself her manager and trainer, accompanying her as she tries out for a popular televised musical talent program called Teen Spirit. Vlad has his own demons, but if he and Violet can stick together as her star rises, they might just make each other better people.

“Effectively updates that familiar star-is-born template for an arthouse-minded Instagram generation.” – Caroline Siede, AV Club
