Critics across the country rave; Spring Breakers is the most talked about movie of the year.

With performances that leap off the screen, “Franco is nothing short of great,” (Chicago-Sun Times) and “James Franco is brilliant” (Newsweek), the film is a must-own!
SPRING BREAK FOREVERRRR… Brit (Benson), Faith (Gomez), Candy (Hudgens) and Cotty (Korine) are best friends anxious to cut loose for spring break, but they don’t have the money. After holding up a restaurant for quick cash, the girls head to the beach in a stolen car for what they think will be the party of a lifetime…until they’re thrown in jail. But they are bailed out by Alien (Franco), a local rapper, drug pusher and arms dealer, who lures them into a criminal underbelly that’s as lurid as it is liberating for a close-knit gang of girlfriends who are still figuring out their paths in life.
