Electrick Children

Careful, kids – rock’n’roll can get you pregnant

Careful, kids – rock’n’roll can get you pregnant. Or that’s what one Mormon teen believes in this cute lo-fi indie from first-timer Rebecca Thomas.

Growing up in a repressive religious commune (overseen by pastor Billy Zane), virginal Rachel (Julia Garner) sneaks a listen to a Blondie cover and ends up with a suspiciously immaculate conception.

Starting off with delicate brushstrokes, the metaphors start getting heavy-handed by the time she runs away to Vegas, discovering the temptations of Sin City, Rory Culkin’s thrash-metal skater dude and some silly plot twists.
