WRITTEN BY: Harmony Korine
STARRING: Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, James Franco

***Preceded by THE LOTUS COMMUNITY WORKSHOP (28 1/2 min) + Rihanna's "NEEDED ME" (3 1/2 min)***

A raucous, John Waters-approved, Britney Spears-infused feature length exploitation pop video, packed to the gills with dripping sexuality, unrelentingly poetic cyclical dialogue, a soul-shaking Skrillex and Trap soundtrack boosted by a transcendent score by Cliff Martinez and dreamy cinematography from Benoit Debie (ENTER THE VOID, CALVAIRE). Harmony Korine gleefully deconstructs the idea of the American Dream & cultural appropriation as he simultaneously calls attention to and participates in its hedonistic spoils, wallowing in the gray area of human existence. And this is all executed with the help of your favorite Disney stars of yesteryear, and the absurd likes of Gucci Mane and the ATL Twins, as they join the deceptively simple story of Faith, Candy, Brit, & Cotty who discover what can happen when you're drawn to darkness and either bail when it gets real, or follow through to the bitter end and find out what it truly means to "spring break forever."
