Electrick Children (No, I did not spell Electric wrong), the story of a 15 year old girl living in a Mormon community located in Utah is easily one of the most extravagant movies I have watched. Not only did the writer create plot twists but didn't create what most, all time, greatest movies lack, is predictability. At the very beginning of the film, Rachel (the protagonist), seems to impregnate herself with the song "Hanging on The Telephone" by The Nerves, coming from a cassette, in which she has never heard or seen before. Now, I'm sure many of you have been stuck in movies where you say to yourself, "He's going to save the day, win the girl, and happily ever after." This isn't one of those cases. This story is the total opposite of predictable. Although this movie is a valuable watch, it doesn't match up a lot of times. For example, into the intro of the movie, Rachel is never seen participating in sexual activity that could lead to getting herself pregnant. She somehow becomes magically pregnant, which is why most of the movie doesn't add up. As soon as Rachel is officially pronounced pregnant, her father blames Rachel's brother, Mr. Will, for getting Rachel pregnant and kicks him out of the family. He also announces Rachel's arranged marriage explaining that she would be getting married the next day. With this news of marriage, Rachel flees that night into Vegas to search for the father of her child, A.K.A the lead singer of The Nerves. From there the story takes place, leaving you with plenty of plot twists to blow your mind.
