"I want to break free"

Played luminously by Elle Fanning (Super 8, Trumbo), Violet is a shy seventeen-year-old girl with an ordinary life - small farm where she lives, days spent waiting tables, doing chores, and studying in school. This shy demeanor is really a cocoon that disguises the superstar within. When she is alone, secure in the safety of her room, or the fields, she breaks free... into musical ecstasy. The directorial debut of actor Max Minghella (The Handmaid's Tale), Teen Spirit delivers the spirited story of an awkward teenager growing into a confident young powerhouse. When she enters an international singing competition, encouraged by her beloved mentor, it transforms her life and gives her wings to fly. - Shwetha VR
