New Film ‘Electrick Children’ About A Mormon ‘Rocked’ By Music
NEW YORK (WLNY) — The new movie “Electrick Children” is a coming-of-age story about a Mormon teenager whose world gets rocked, to so speak, after getting her first taste of rock music.
In the film, a rambunctious teenager, Rachel, discovers a forbidden cassette tape with rock music on it. Having never heard anything like it, she has a miraculous experience.
Three months later, Rachel turns up pregnant and claims to have had an immaculate conception from listening to the music. Rachel’s parents arrange a marriage for her, but Rachel runs away to the closest city, Las Vegas to search for the man who sings on the cassette tape, thinking he has something to do with her mysterious pregnancy.
Bill Sage is one of the stars of the film, which opens in limited release on Friday. He joined us on The Couch to chat about the movie.
