WITNESS meets ALMOST FAMOUS by way of early Gus Van Sant in first-time director Rebecca Thomas's gleefully odd, dazzling coming-of-age tale ELECTRICK CHILDREN.

Starring luminous stars of the future Julia Garner (MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE) and Rory Culkin (MEAN CREEK), the film follows young Mormon virgin Rachel (Garner), who awakens one day to find herself inexplicably pregnant after secretly listening to a forbidden tape of The Nerves' classic hit 'Hanging on the Telephone'. Facing shame in her community and a forced marriage, Rachel flees the strict compound where she lives and, accompanied by her stern cousin Mr Will (a scene-stealing Aiken), hits the road in search of the singer on the tape - the man she is convinced has made her pregnant through music. Lost in Las Vegas, the oddball pair fall in with a bunch of slacker skater punk-rockers led by dreamy lost boy Clyde (Culkin), and together are thrown into a very different new world full of music, romance and possibility.

A frequently hilarious, beautifully shot fish-out-of-water road movie, blessed with astonishing performances from a hot young cast and a swooning soundtrack to die for, ELECTRICK CHILDREN has all the ingredients of a cult classic in the making.

Don't miss this striking debut from an exciting new voice in American indie filmmaking.
