Since hearing about it at TIFF, I’ve been itching what seems like forever now to see Spring Breakers, Writer/Director Harmony Korine‘s Dramedy about four Spring Break-obsessed College Girls who decide to rob a store to fund their vacation. After getting caught and thrown in jail, they are bailed-out by a Gangster named Alien who enlists their help for a special task, introducing them to his dangerous world of Crime.
Korine tells Interview Magazine last Summer that he was inspired to create Spring Breakers after spending many of his vacations simply Skateboarding, so this is Project gave him an opportunity to make-up for what he missed growing-up.
Despite few having reviewed it, the Film has garnered some raves from Critics so far at Rotten Tomatoes, earning a not-at-all-disgraceful 62% on the Tomatometer.
I am intruged by its Cast which includes Rachel Korine (Wife of Harmony), Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Heather Morris and James Franco in yet another odd choice of role for the Oscar-nominated Actor.
VVS Films releases Spring Breakers on Friday,March 29, 2013.
Watch the Trailer:
I may have met some of the Cast for Spring Breakers over the years:

Awesome Piece. Err… well, you know what I mean. 26-year-old American Adult Film Star James Deen is featured this month in INTERVIEW Magazine and he is interviewed by none other than Screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis, who wrote the game-changing and AMERICAN PSYCHO which made a Star out of once-Child Actor Christian Bale. Will this meaty Role (pardon the pun) do the same for Deen in making him a crossover Success?
Ellis and Deen collaborated on upcoming Film The Canyons, an upcoming Drama about Youth, Sex and Glamour in Los Angeles, 2012, starring Pap-Magnet Lindsay Lohan and also controversial Director, Gus Van Sant. The Flick, due sometime in 2013, has Deen – real name: Bryan Matthew Sevilla – starring as a wealthy 20-something with an overbearing Personality.
On the hoards of Paparazzi hanging-out around the Set of the Film to get Snaps of Lohan, Deen tells Ellis he wasn’t really much of a target, stating “I mean, Paparazzi can’t get a picture of me doing anything interesting. I’m untouchable. Here’s James Deen peeing in public, making out with a girl in a bar, drunk and puking. Yeah, I’m a Porn Star. What do you expect?”.
