What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Teen Spirit is a drama about a girl who competes in singing competition like The Voice or American Idol to achieve her dream of becoming a pop star. Shy 17-year-old Violent (Elle Fanning) longs to leave her small town and become a famous singer. With the help of her unlikely mentor, an opera singer (Zlatko Buric), she enters the Teen Spirit singing competition in the hopes that it will catapult her to stardom. Teens will likely be drawn to the movie for its pop-music-filled soundtrack, but expect some swearing, romance, and sexuality.
