Vivacity, the show that loves good living, is a weekly magazine-style programme that focuses on alternative health, lifestyles and eco and ethical living issues here in the South West. These are the things that I’m passionate about and I enjoy spreading the news about all the fabulous people and projects we have here.
Hi in this podcast I have my interview with exciting new young female American director Rebecca Thomas. Rebecca’s first feature film “Electrick Children” was one of the most warmly received films at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and I was able to get an interview with her recorded, where we talk a little about her Mormon upbringing and details on her wonderfully quirky film, cast and crew.
Click on the above official poster to visit Rebecca’s and Electrick Children’s official website.
Directed by Rebecca Thomas and starring upcoming actress Julia Garner alongside Rory Culkin (Scream 4, You Can Count on Me), Liam Aiken (The Killer Inside Me) and Billy Zane (Titanic), Electrick Children is a beautiful coming of age story set against the backdrop of a sheltered childhood amongst the Mormon community.

Pregnant by music? On her 15th birthday, Rachel, a young Mormon girl from a fundamentalist Utah community, discovers a forbidden cassette tape with rock music on it. Having never heard anything like it, she has a miraculous experience and three months later, claims to have had an immaculate conception from listening to the music. Her parents arrange a marriage, but Rachel runs away to the closest city, Las Vegas, to search for the man who sings on thetape, thinking he has something to do with her mysterious pregnancy…
