Elle is on the cover of Teen Vogue’s Special Edition! She talks about her latest movie Teen Spirit, her love for singing and functioning under pressure. A new photoshoot was released along with the issue, and we’ve uploaded it to our photo gallery.

There’s a scene near the end of Elle Fanning’s new movie Teen Spirit where she performs Sigrid’s “Don’t Kill My Vibe” in the finals of a singing competition. Her character, Violet Valenski, the young daughter of a Polish immigrant, sees the contest as a way out of her small town, where her days are spent going to school, working in a restaurant to support herself and her mother, and taking care of her family’s goats and horses.

As Violet belts the song’s chorus, she tears the mic off the stand, throwing herself around onstage like Dua Lipa or Gwen Stefani (who has a song on the soundtrack). Violet puts those years of dancing in her room to “Just a Girl” to good use, eventually rising to the top, where she is confronted with the stakes of her burgeoning fame.

Violet is trying to achieve a lifelong dream, but in the finals, Elle transcends her character, fulfilling her own lifelong dream of being a singer. And as she loses herself in the song, wailing lyrics like “I throw myself from heights that used to scare me” with wild emotion, she’s also, well, us, embodying that hidden part of ourselves that yearns to be seen, to be recognized for what we can do and to be adored for it — and as we encounter success, to maintain some semblance of what made us unique in the first place.

That’s the conflict at the crux of Teen Spirit, a pop movie-musical that follows the introverted-outsider Violet’s journey through the rounds of an American Idol–type singing competition until she makes it to the finals. Written and directed by The Handmaid’s Tale actor Max Minghella, executive-produced by Jamie Bell, and produced by La La Land’s Fred Berger, Teen Spirit is a gritty commentary on what it takes to become a star while retaining some part of your original self.

Elle is aware that this kind of story is captivating for audiences, as evidenced by the number of films with similar arcs, like the aforementioned La La Land and the recent Lady Gaga–led remake of A Star Is Born. See also: Burlesque, Almost Famous, and even one of Elle’s other movies, The Neon Demon, where a young girl becomes a supermodel to terrifying consequences.

“It’s a fairy tale. A girl or boy from a small town enters the big city and has their first experience with stardom,” Elle tells Teen Vogue. “I don’t think people will ever really stop telling that story.”

Surprisingly, Teen Spirit was Elle’s first time really singing in a movie, in an already prolific career filled with indie flicks like How to Talk to Girls at Parties and 20th Century Women, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled and Somewhere, and big-budget Disney hits like Maleficent, and its sequel slated for release later this year. At first Elle wasn’t considered for the role of Violet; she heard about Teen Spirit from a press release announcing Minghella as the director — not a traditional agent or casting call — and she reached out to set up a meeting.

She is an instinctive actor, a playful model, a red-carpet revelation and, as she’s proving in a new film, a seriously impressive singer. But there’s something else about ELLE FANNING, something that makes her almost magically irresistible. JENNIFER DICKINSON meets her to explore the allure

The story of Sleeping Beauty has many variations – some of them rather unsavory, if truth be told (Giambattista Basile, the author of the original tale, was no Walt Disney, let’s put it that way) – but in one of the more PG versions, Princess Aurora is bestowed with magical gifts by the good fairies who managed to secure an invite to her christening. Beauty, predictably, is one of them, but more cheeringly so are courage, sweetness and musicality. It’s the combination of these qualities that makes Elle Fanning’s role in Maleficent, as the fated heroine, one of the best pieces of casting Hollywood has ever seen.

According to Stark Insider, Elle’s presence has been confirmed at the Cinequest Film Festival! A conversation with her, and the Maverick Spirit Award presentation, is scheduled to happen alongside a screening of her new film Teen Spirit on Sunday, March 17 at 1:00pm at the California Theatre, downtown San Jose.

“Cinequest is thrilled to announce Elle Fanning will join us for a Maverick Spirit Award presentation and conversation with her fantastic new film Teen Spirit this Sunday afternoon. Ms. Fanning’s dynamic work has already demonstrated the bold, original force of the Maverick, setting a stage for a lifetime of creativity.”

In Teen Spirit (director Max Minghella), Fanning plays Violet a shy seventeen-year-old girl with an ordinary life – small farm where she lives, days spent waiting tables, doing chores, and studying in school. This shy demeanor is really “a cocoon that disguises the superstar within.”
