Teen Spirit tells a story we know by heart, but writer-director Max Minghella’s connection to the material and Elle Fanning’s remarkable performance add an effective hook (yes, it’s really her singing!).

Violet is a shy teenager from a Polish background who dreams of escaping her boring small town and pursuing her passion to sing.

With the help of an unlikely mentor she finds in a pub, 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.

A feelgood film that transports you to another realm.
