Elle Fanning in new trailer for ‘Teen Spirit,’ featuring songs by Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry, Robyn

Elle Fanning (20th Century Women) stars as Violet Valesnki, 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 and featuring music by Robyn, Ellie Goulding (that’s “Lights” you hear in the trailer), Tegan & Sara, Annie Lennox, Orbital, Sigrid, and Carly Rae Jepsen & Jack Antonoff. With additional music by Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Grimes, The Undertones, Aqua, Alice Deejay, Whigfield, Major Lazer and No Doubt, Teen Spirit is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.

Teen Spirit had its world premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. It is written and directed by Max Minghella (The Handmaid’s Tale) and produced by Fred Berger (La La Land). It co-stars Rebecca Hall, Zlatko Buric, and Agnieszka Grochowska.

LD Entertainment & Bleecker Street will release Teen Spirit in select theaters April 5th.
