ELECTRICK CHILDREN (15)

Director: Rebecca Thomas. Starring: Julia Garner, Rory Culkin, Bill Sage, Billy Zane, Liam Aiken. USA 2012. 95 mins.

WITNESS meets ALMOST FAMOUS by way of early Gus Van Sant in this gleefully odd, dazzling coming-of-age tale. The film follows young Mormon virgin Rachel (Garner), who awakens one day to find herself inexplicably pregnant after secretly listening to a forbidden tape of The Nerves’ classic hit Hanging on the Telephone. Facing shame in her community and a forced marriage, Rachel flees and, accompanied by her stern cousin Mr Will (Aiken), hits the road in search of the singer on the tape - the man she is convinced has made her pregnant through music. Lost in Las Vegas, the oddball pair fall in with a bunch of slacker skater punk-rockers led by dreamy lost boy Clyde (Culkin), and are thrown into a very different new world full of music, romance and possibility.
