Sadly, the film doesn't live up to the depth of the music that seems to have inspired its existence.
This making-of-a-star drama is old-fashioned and corny, and not in a good way.
What's so brave and exciting about Max Minghella's directorial debut is that it refuses to compromise on either end, a sweet pop spectacle at once both proudly generic and unafraid to be itself.
Knows how to add gloss without losing emotion.
A movie that's formulaic in every detail but that passes off its particular cute brand of British Isles whimsy as a vaguely high-toned signifier of "authenticity."
Minghella's painterly eye and intoxicating aesthetic is infectious like the most immortal pop songs are.
Like Robyn's heroine in that song, Violet is giving it her all. You'll feel the spirit.
Teen Spirit tells an old tale, but Max Minghella's incredible directorial debut is a technicolor, neon-drenched fever dream.
Simply put, Elle Fanning is Teen Spirit. This is a performance piece, nothing more and nothing less, and those invested in seeing Fanning soar in her career have every reason to watch. She's become the most formidable actress of her generation.
Whenever Fanning takes the mic, a stream of surrealistic fancies pour onto the screen... even in shots of her just staring directly into the camera for a close-up that is both entranced and entrancing.
Elle Fanning might not be at Hailee Steinfeld's level and start a parallel career as a pop star, but as an actress nailing the part of up-and-coming pop star-nail it, she most certainly does.
The film is derivative, calibrated to appeal to a lowest-common-denominator audience ... and yet admittedly catchy.
