Two things. Firstly, after all the, let’s say “documentaries” I’ve seen on this American tradition of drunken debauchery that is Spring Break, a tale of a group of permanently bikini clad girls robbing a store, getting caught and thrown into jail, and then being bailed out by the K-Fed lookalike drug dealer they meet there in exchange for them killing his drug dealing rival, sounds 100% completely plausible and factual to me.
Secondly, I am totally conflicted when confronted with the image of “sexy” Selena Gomez in tiny bikini. Isn’t this the cute as a button little girl that my two equally young nieces used to watch on the Disney channel? Eurgh. Dirty old man mode activated.
Spring Breakers is being made by Harmony Korine, who was the writer behind the controversial Kids. Since then he has gone on to make films about people humping trash (seriously), a post-Tornado struck town with bacon on the walls of the bathrooms and in a local twist, a documentary about Die Antwoord. So yeah, not what you might call regular mainstream fare. It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds through his rather, let’s call it, “unique” vision.
There is no release date yet for Spring Breakers.
