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.
I gave this a shot despite only so-so reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Tightly directed with a central performance by Dev Patel that is uncommonly committed and intense. The cinematography is gorgeous including parts of the world not often committed to film.
Every time I thought this would turn into a basic action movie it surprised me by sticking to the characters motivations and deepening the story. I loved it.
