If Bradley Cooper‘s A STAR IS BORN didn’t quite fill the “young up-and-coming singer finds fame” portion of your movie-watching heart, well, TEEN SPIRIT might just be the ticket. Written and directed by Max Minghella, the upcoming film stars Elle Fanning as Violet, a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. Get in line. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition which will test her integrity, talent, and ambition.

Described as a “visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderelle story,” TEEN SPIRIT will be driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack featuring performances of and music written by Robyn, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Tegan & Sara, Jack Antonoff, Carly Rae Jepsen, Annie Lennox, Orbital, Alice DeeJay, The Undertones, Major Lazer, Grimes, Whitfield, and Sigrid. So if that’s something which appeals to you, you’ll be able to catch TEEN SPIRIT in theaters on April 5, 2019.
