Elle Fanning is belting her heart out in the latest trailer for “Teen Spirit”.
In the film, Fanning stars as Violet, a shy teenager with a killer voice who might just have what it takes to win a reality TV singing competition. When one of the show’s cutthroat producers (Rebecca Hall) recognizes her potential, she offers Violet a recording contract on the spot which might be too good to be true for the wannabe singer.
The new trailer for the film features Fanning’s vocals as she covers Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” as her part of her audition for the reality show. The actress performed all of her own original vocals in the film, covering songs by Goulding, Robyn, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Tegan & Sara, Carly Rae Jepsen and more.
“Teen Spirit” marks the directorial debut of “The Handmaid’s Tale” actor Max Minghella, son of the late Oscar-winning director of “The English Patient”, Anthony Minghella. The movie premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival and will next screen as part of the SXSW Film Festival in March before hitting Canadian theatres in April.
