Rebecca Thomas’ gauzy debut film Electrick Children follows a rambunctious 15-year-old Mormon girl, Rachel (Julia Garner), who believes she has had an immaculate conception after discovering a forbidden cassette tape with rock music on it. When her fundamentalist parents (Cynthia Watros and Billy Zane) arrange a marriage, Rachel runs away to Las Vegas to search for the man who sang on the tape with her disgruntled brother (Liam Aiken) in tow where she befriends a group of rockers (including Rory Culkin). Garner, who was previously seen in a supporting role in last year’s Martha Marcy May Marlene, is absolutely sensational in her first lead role here, and Electrick Children is a must-see for fans of unique indie cinema. The film will be released next week in New Zealand cinemas on November 8, and A Fistful of Culture have five double passes to giveaway this week thanks to Rialto Distribution.
