Check out the first teaser for Teen Spirit from director Max Minghella

Director Max Minghella, best known as an actor on The Handmaid’s Tale, took to Twitter yesterday to release the first teaser for Teen Spirit, his directorial debut. You can check out his tweet, teaser and all, below (via Collider)!

The film stars Elle Fanning (The Beguiled, Maleficent) as an aspiring pop star and Agnieszka Grochowska (Persona Non-Grata) as her mother. Teen Spirit is currently slated to play at the Toronto International Film Festival this year.

Violet (Fanning), is a 17-year-old who lives with her mother (Grochowska) on a small farm on the Isle of Wight. While she spends her days doing chores, waiting tables, and going to school, she mostly tries to keep to herself. During her free time alone, either in her room, with her horse, or at an open-mic night, Violet yearns to be a singer. Naturally gifted with a lovely voice, her dreams of becoming a pop star don’t seem that far-fetched. Over the course of the film, Violet learns how to come out of her shell and embrace her seemingly impossible dream.

Minghella wrote and directed the film, which also stars Rebecca Hall (The Town, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women) and Zlatko Buric (1864, Montana). Fred Berger (La La Land) is serving as producer.
