With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition.

What the Critics say

24.com
Ilan Preskovsky quote iconThe great problem with Teen Spirit, the directorial début from actor Max Minghella, is that there’s little in it that you can’t get from watching a single episode of one of the many talent-competition shows out there.

Leon van Nierop quote iconEk wil TEEN SPIRIT graag aanbeveel, want dit is ‘n rolprent met oortuigende, volronde karakters wat ontwikkel. Dis nie net ‘n sokkiejol met mooi poppies en kwaadkatte nie.

Tomatometer quote iconTeen Spirit tells a story we know by heart, but writer-director Max Minghella’s connection to the material and Elle Fanning’s remarkable performance add an effective hook.

Sandie Angulo Chen quote iconTouching but slow drama about aspiring singer has drinking.

Jim Judy quote iconSo, in the end, Teen Spirit comes off like a green entrant who has a decent audition and gets encouragement from the judges to keep growing, but it doesn’t stand out enough to be advanced through to the next round.
