Same-old Same, although Elle is magnificent
12 July 2019 | by salonsoabSee all my reviews

Teen Spirit is an overall solid film. Elle Fanning stands-out with an amazing performance and a really good voice, the two main leads are well developed and they are relatable, and the music performances are colorful and entertaining. The reason why this movie does not get to higher levels is because of the script: extremely predictable. We have seen this story before, and the direction is nothing to brag about, wasting the potential brought by the interesting characters and the great performances. To summarize, Teen Spirit is what you expect from watching the trailer, but don not expect anything hiding underneath it.
