Teen Spirit ★★★★

I'm not completely sure what I just watched. American Idol fan fiction? Whatever it was, it's not dull. Elle Fanning is all heart, grit and gumption, breathing insane amounts of life into a listless and obvious story. PLUS, she sings and is riveting as a musical performer. The cinematography is 2010s music video delightful - also elevating the basic setup. Not sure it's worth arguing with anyone who rolls their eyes at this film. Fanning or Bust, I say.
