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.
The hostage situation depicted in the film is what originated the psychological phenomenon known as Stockholm Syndrome, where hostages develop a psychological alliance with (sometimes also referred to as sympathy or sympathetic feelings for) their captors, as a survival strategy. See more »
The bank lobby is definitely filmed in the United States rather than in Sweden. The design of telephones, light switches, and door knobs aren't same as in Sweden or Europe. The European telephones prior to the 1990s don't have the letters corresponding to the numbers. The light switches in Sweden and Europe don't use the toggle to lift up or down: instead, they use the flat rocker panels. The European doors (outside the United Kingdom) use the handles rather than knobs. See more »
I'm so confused. I was expecting a biopic, it is not! Why? It's an interesting story on it's own. And if you wanted to do it all Hollywood, why would you hire so many nordic actors and then do the entire movie in broken english. What a missed opportunity.
