Samuel L. Jackson,
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.
This is a story about a common man who has extraordinary events in his mundane life. The film depicts the protagonist's turns of events in three eras, three seasons, three nights, in the same city, as told with reverse chronology.
This is what I'd call a fast paced mess. The problems begin with a vague murder of a DA and dirty cops. If you're thinking unoriginal you're right. All chances to make it the least bit compelling are never addressed. There's absolutely no character development as if that isn't important either. It comes down to a young internist doctor trying to save his hostage pregnant wife. The many holes are ignored about as expected. The action can't even make this film work. I'd say don't waste your time....move along.
