Spring Breakers (2012)

Spring-Breakers-UK-Quad-Poster-BlueSpring Breakers by Harmony Korine is guaranteed to spark up a huge discussion.

It was crude, It was daring and It was mystical. I was shocked, I was captivated and I was entertained.

I expected to see Selena Gomez step out a little more  out of her comfort zone; I was shocked/impressed with Vanessa Hudgens mostly; and It was the best of James Franco.

imagesI understand that they are trying to transition into adulthood and away from Disney but It was a very daring role for these young ladies (Including Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine); I really hope that they won’t end up like Sue Lyon after she played Lolita in Stanley Kubrick‘s film.

Based on her raw and very explicit performance, I was quite surprised to find out that Rachel (cotty) is actually married to Harmony Korine in real life. The fact that she was able to let go to this extent with her husband right there makes everything even more interesting.

Where do we draw the line between what is acceptable and not acceptable in terms of young girls getting naked on screen? Should we encourage this much realism such as this film exhibits or should we take into account the repercussions that it will have on society? Does this movie empower these girls or puts them at a disadvantage? Are movies simply mirroring society or are they creating trends? Why don’t you see it for yourself and decide whether you like it or not. It’s definitely an interesting watch.spring-breakers-image09
