Electrick Children Synopsis

Electrick Children tells the story of Rachel, a rambunctious girl from a polygamist colony in southern Utah. On Rachel’s 15th birthday, she finds a forbidden cassette tape. Having never seen anything like it before, Rachel plays the cassette tape, and finds glorious rock & roll thereupon. Weeks later, Rachel realizes a miracle has occurred- and the cassette tape must have something to do with it. She leaves her family and runs away to the closest city: Las Vegas. There she searches for the singer of the band on the cassette tape. She has a wild adventure and ultimately discovers who she really is: an ELECTRICK CHILD.

Some cool sides to this recent US Indie: as a European girl, I'm also intrigued by the Mormon culture and curious about their traditions. Then, you have the soundtrack which is a centre piece of the film, as Rachel has the feeling she gets pregnant from the rock&roll she hears on the cassette tape. It follows her around during the whole film. Finally, ELECTRICK CHILDREN offers a melancholic pop art cinematography, where lights and colours of LAS VEGAS contrast with the austere life the protagonist is used to. Julia Garner beautifully takes centre stage on Rebecca Thomas' feature debut.
