Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
Violet is a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack, Teen Spirit is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.
Interesting, fun, and worth the price of admission
Korine is following up the success of 'Spring Breakers' with 'The Beach Bum,' starring Matthew McConaughey as Moon Dog, who gives a fantastic performance which is the end result--and perfection--of the caricature McConaughey has seemingly been developing since his role of Wooderson in the movie Dazed and Confused.
The supporting cast of 'The Beach Bum' does an admirable job, especially Jonah Hill who looks as fit and trim as he has in a long time, since 21 Jump Street. The exception to this is Jimmy Buffet, who Korine assumably just wanted to hang out with, since we've seen better acting from a house plant.
The story of 'The Beach Bum' and the character of Moon Dog aren't very deep. In both respects, what you see is what you get. But they're both interesting and fun, to say the least, and worth the price of admission.
