Spring Breakers is a thriller that was released in the United States in 2013. It was written and directed by Harmony Korine. The movie stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, and James Franco. The supporting cast consists of Heather Morris, Gucci Mane, and Ash Lendzion. It is rated R for its suggestive sexual content, nudity, language, and violence. The running time of the film is 94 minutes.
The film opens up by establishing the lives of four close friends at college, who all live in the same dorm room. With the semester almost over, the girls are bored. They want to have fun and be adventurous. Luckily, they realize that spring break is just around the corner. However, they do not have enough money to make a trip down to Florida. Thus, it is their goal to raise enough money to have a memorable spring break.
The idea they come up with is to rob a convenience store. They pull it off successfully. Next thing you know they leave campus and head to Florida. When they get down there they party too hard and get arrested for using drugs. Luck finds their way again as they are bailed out by a strange drug-dealing gangster named Alien (played by James Franco). For unknown reasons, he takes the four girls home and acts as their mentor.
The eccentric and uncontrollable Alien is just the type of person the girls want to party with, but he will quickly prove to be too much for them. This movie is about the girls going on an adventure, and having to come to the realization that they may have gone too far. All they wanted was to have fun on spring break, and they certainly got more than they bargained for.
It’s the middle of the summer, the sun is hot, and you’re in the mood to stay inside and watch a movie that will get your adrenaline flowing. You’re in luck; new movie releases on digital and DVD for mid-July include films about terrors including ravenous demons, soul-stealing aliens and misbehaving young people. “Spring Breakers” is a hedonistic adventure written and directed by Harmony Korine (“Kids”). It follows a quartet of college students (Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine) as they engage in behavior typical of kids on spring break: drinking, sex, fast driving and armed robbery.
James Franco has a vice grip on the box office lately, with “Oz: The Great and Powerful” raking in a whopping $42.4 million. Though on a smaller scale, his other flick “Spring Breakers” is also making a name for itself. The film hit theaters on a limited release for the weekend, but brought in $270,000 on just three screens, making it the biggest limited debut of the year thus far. Big names like Vanessa Hudgens, “Pretty Little Liars” star Ashley Benson, and Selena Gomez are largely credited with the draw.
