Spring break for Faith, Candy, Brit, and Cotty (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine) was supposed to be a chance to get away from the stress of rules, school, life, and the norm. But to make their dreams come true, the four beauties will reveal just how ugly they can be– fueling the fire is Alien (James Franco), a rapper/gangster/drug dealer living in Florida. Combined, Alien and the girls will search their souls, find their own truths, and make their own paths in life; but their self-discovery could have severe impacts.spring-breakers-poster By far his most accessible film to date, writer/director Harmony Korine’s love for the seedy, the derelict, and the destitute is evident and omnipresent. Meanwhile, Korine’s juxtaposition of dialogue to visuals is ironic and poignant as ever, making for a sharp, grating message, almost guaranteed to leave you a little queasy all the while poking the idea of spring break in the eye, and probably causing a sty. The acting here is solid, the visuals are interesting, just know that this could be a tough watch for the weak of stomach. Worth your attention in some form, Spring Breakers is rated R, and remember to bring your antibiotics.
