We knew Elle Fanning could act, but can she sing? She excels at both and despite the predictable story line, her performance overcomes the shortcoming leading to a sensational climax.
This is Writer/Director Max Minghella’s first feature as director who has directed music videos and that pays off in this film. (He’s also an actor having been in numerous episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale and son of the late Oscar Winning director Anthony Minghella.) The music in this film is pure pop with some recognizable songs to go along with original music that Fanning delivers herself. You’ll be surprised. We were. She worked with a vocal coach for 4 months.
