Sounds Like Teen Spirit (2009) International Trailer
Sounds Like Teen Spirit is the warmly comic story of childhood, innocence, teen-dreams and singing off-key.
Marrying the affectionate indie humour of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ with the charm and emotion of ‘Stand by Me’, ‘Sounds Like Teen Spirit’ follows the journey of 4 loveable-losers to the world’s largest children’s song-writing contest including all the foibles of growing up along the way.
Featuring music by ABBA, Roxy Music, The Who, Henri Mancini and Belgium’s infamous Singing Nun Sounds Like Teen Spirit celebrates the underdog spirit of heroic amateurism in what Variety describes as an ‘irrestistible crowd pleaser… delightful’.
MoviePic writes how Teen Spirit ‘leaves you all teary and tenderhearted’ and IndiePix called it ‘the hit of the festival’, following its Toronto Premiere.
Sounds Like Teen Spirit is directed by BAFTA, Broadcast and Gierson nominated ‘best new director’ Jamie J Johnson and produced by British indie veterans Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley.
