In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.
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.
As a rebellious and motherless child, Ophelia is taken into Elsinore Castle by Queen Gertrude as one of her most trusted ladies-in-waiting. Soon enough, Ophelia captures the affections of the young Prince Hamlet. A passionate romance kindles between the 2 in secret as the kingdom is on the brink of war amidst its own political intrigue and betrayal. When Hamlet's father is murdered and the prince's wits begin to unravel into an insatiable quest for vengeance, Ophelia sharply navigates the rules of power in Denmark all while struggling to choose between her true love and her own life.
She is Ophelia. And her hard work for that is meritorious. It is a beautiful film. And its basic idea is more than seductive. But it has a small- great sin- it is not convincing. The first part can be defined as a good promise but the second seems run to finish. Something becomes wrong. The drop of "Romeo and Juliet", the sentimental embroidery and the revenge webb, the thirst of revenge. And the dialogues. Yes, it is a beautiful film and far to be a dessapointment. But it deserves be better. The gift, surelly, the noble effort of Daisy Ridley to sustain a role who, in few moments, seems a dress superficial made.
