A rambunctious teen from a Mormon family runs off to Vegas in search of the rocker who may have something to do with her perceived immaculate conception in the indie film Electrick Children, also starring Rory Culkin, and we've got an exclusive clip!
In select theaters today, Electrick Children stars Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene) as Rachel, the fundamentalist young woman from Utah who claims to have had an immaculate conception from listening to a forbidden cassette tape with rock music on it on her 15th birthday. Determined to evade an arranged marriage and find the singer on the tape – whom she thinks might have something to do with the mysterious pregnancy – she heads to Sin City with her brother (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events star Liam Aiken).
There, they meet young rocker Clyde, (Culkin), who challenges everything they've been taught and changes the way they see the world.
Billy Zane and Cynthia Watros also star as Rachel's parents in the debut feature from director Rebecca Thomas.
