Watch Elle Fanning Sing Ellie Goulding’s ‘Lights’ in New ‘Teen Spirit’ TrailerRolling Stone — Brittany Spanos
Teen Spirit tells the tale of fictional pop star Violet (Fanning), a shy Polish teenager who enters a singing competition. This particular trailer previews how quickly Violet’s talent is not only spotted by the producers behind the competition but maybe even taken advantage of. Rebecca Hall’s character, who seems to be a record label executive involved with the show who wants to sign Violet, is given a fairly ominous preview as scenes of Violet’s old and new life rapidly weave together. Violet appears to sing “Lights” during one of the stages of the competition.
Teen Spirit will hit theaters on April 5th. The film will feature Fanning covering not only Goulding, but hits by Tegan & Sara, Robyn, Carly Rae Jepsen, Annie Lennox, Jack Antonoff and Sigrid. Music by Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Grimes, No Doubt and more will also be featured prominently in the movie.
