Spring Breakers

Director: Harmony Korine

Starring: James Franco, Selena Gomez , Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine

Coming of age nonsense this time involving four raunchy college girls on an ‘anything goes’ Florida holiday. Faith (Selena Gomez) , Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty(Rachel Korine) steal money for the bash then run foul of the law only to be saved by the Machiavellian, Alien (hammed by James Franco). He has a devious and deadly plan which involves the unsuspecting bikini clad revelers. Through the mayhem and debauchery which follows we discover not all that’s bad is bad etc. Not quite the puerile sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll saga you might hope for but will no doubt have appeal to the Gen Y crowd. Mesmerizing score by Cliff Martinez and electronica artist Skillrex.
