A story about a troubled boy growing up in England, set in 1983. He comes across a few skinheads on his way home from school, after a fight. They become his new best friends even like family. Based on experiences of director Shane Meadows.
Brit, Candy, Cotty, and Faith have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper "Alien" promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget. Written by
As a fan of Korine's earlier work, I was very excited to see this film and the wait for an Australian release seemed to take forever. I went into the cinema with very high expectations and was still blown away by how powerful and mesmerising it turned out to be. The cinematography and editing was perfect and really accentuated the surreal, trance-like feel.
'Spring Breakers' will no doubt become a huge cult film and will continue to be interpreted in different ways for many years to come. If you get the chance to see this film, definitely do. But just remember to keep an open mind when viewing and don't let the trashy surface image fool you of it's greatness.
