Spring Breakers, set to hit theater nationwide on March 22nd, follows four party girl best friends on their ambitious quest to have the most epic, balls-to-the-wall spring break possible. In an attempt to save up enough money to get out of their boring college dorm, they hatch a plan to burglarize a fast food joint after a wild night of partying. They make it to spring break paradise only to have their plans come to a screeching halt when the girls, wearing only bikinis, are arrested on drug charges. Hungover and scared when they appear before the judge, an infamous drug and arms dealing rapper, Alien (James Franco), bails them out of jail. The foursome’s freedom comes with a catch though as Alien takes them under his wing, expecting the girls to carry out his dirty work in return for his good deed, leading them onto the craziest vacation they could’ve ever dreamed up.
Visually impressive, Spring Breakers director Harmony Korine, is given “full credit” for “sustain[ing] this act of creative vandalism right through to the finish. Spring Breakers unfolds as a fever dream of teenage kicks, a high-concept heist movie with mescal in the fuel tank,” says The Guardian film critic, Xan Brooks. You’ll never look at Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens (Faith and Candy) in the same light as they shed their good-girl Disney images for this film. Spring Breakers is sure to earn itself a cult following similar to Jawbreaker, Sugar & Spice, and Heathers as it isn't your typical teen dra-medy about the antics of spring break vacation.
The soundtrack for Spring Breakers will appeal to EDM-lovers as it accompanies the upbeat, colorful cinematography found through out the movie. With mixes from Skrillex, Waka Flocka Flame, Cliff Martinez, and Ellie Goulding the tracks off Spring Breakers will be the perfect mix for your own spring break shenanigans. In a role, that will make you think James Franco is even odder, Franco covers Brittney’s “ Everytime,” which unfortunately didn’t make the cut on the official soundtrack. Thankfully, for us though, Franco is featured on the Dangeruss track, "Hangin' With Da Dopeboys."
