Inquirer Breaking News - 6 hours 57 min ago
In the currently showing "Teen Spirit," Elle Fanning plays Violet Valenski, a down-on-her-luck high school student who is supposed to be more talented than her pouty and sulky demeanor suggests. She thinks she has what it takes to escape her humdrum existence on the Isle of Wight, but her lingering insecurities and penchant for excitement over focus get the better of her when she decides to take part in and makes the cut in a make-or-break talent competition that could forge her future.
