#TIFF18: “TEEN SPIRIT” REVIEW
Revjew by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
When Violet (Elle Fanning) hears about an international singing competition that’s holding auditions in her hometown, Isle of Wright, she takes it as her ticket to escape from her family life and the small town. Teen Spirit is actor Max Minghella’s first Feature and will have its World Premiere at TIFF in the Special Presentations Programme.
Fanning gives an energetic and powerful performance as the ever blooming Violet, and is able to showcase yet another one of her talents — her beautiful singing voice. This Film is an ambitious first Feature for Minghella and shows he’s not only has talented in front of the camera, but also behind. And pit together one killer Soundtrack.
Teen Spirit screens at TIFF on Friday, September 7 at 2:30 PM at Ryerson Theatre, Sunday, September 9 at 7:30 PM at Scotiabank 1, and Saturday, September 15 at 9:15 PM at Ryerson Theatre.
