Spring Breakers (2012)

Sunny Florida. Since Grade School, best friends, Brit, Candy, Cotty, and Faith are are living in a boring college dorm but craving adventure. The girls resort to desperate measures to get enough money for their chance of some real fun during the spring break. A chance encounter with rapper and drug dealer, Alien (James Franco), promises to fulfill their desire for all the thrills and excitement they could ever hope for. How far are the girls willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget?

The cast is joined by famous singer, Selena Gomez, and an almost unrecognizable, James Franco.

HARMONY KORINE is an original, nonconformist rebel and talented filmmaker. He gained recognition at the young age of 19 when he wrote the shocking screenplay for Larry Clark's Kids (1992), and went on to direct his own films such as Gummo, Mister Lonely, Trush Humpers and Spring Breakers. When his controversial debut Gummo (1997) was shown at Telluride Film Festival, some people after the first minutes of screening walked out, calling the film disgusting.

Korine's films focus on the inhabitants of poor, excluded society ignored by the mainstream, such as demoralized, lost teenagers, lonely kids, sociopatic elders, unhappy impersonators. His affection and empathy for these figures is sincere enabling the audience to fall in love with these strange characters who normally would be difficult to identify or empathize with.
