Elle Fanning: 'Pure Life' with Vera Farmiga

Elle Fanning and Vera Farmiga will star together in the upcoming drama Pure Life, according to indieWire.

Pic is about a 13-year-old girl (Fanning) who wants a romance like one in the Brat Pack movies. Despite living in poverty with her hard-working mother (Farmiga), she searches for romance and finds a bad boy worthy of taking her virginity.

The film will begin production this spring.

    Whoa she is a bit young to be asking for it from guys..although in reality a lot of girls that age probably do..
    anyway I hear Elle’s a brilliant actress so she’ll do well in this role.
    And I loved Vera Farmiga in Up in the Air so I ‘m sure she won’t disappoint in this film.

    Just what a 13 year old needs to see at a movie theater

  • Anon

    Im sooo excited! Elle will do brilliant, I’m sure.

    a 13-year-old girl searches for romance and finds a bad boy worthy of taking her virginity? like seriously??

  • Eric Gibson Cartman

    A girl searching for romance? C’mon, searching for someone to pop her cherry.
    I think is more ✡ JewlyWood ✡ perverted media agenda. (Roman Polanski will like the movie).
    Vera Farmiga was in the painful jew-production “the boy in the striped pyjamas”.
    How about “The palestinian kid who lost everything”?

  • Iffy Miffy

    Nobody would deny that 13yo do have sex but do we need movies to make this seem such a great idea/adventure/whatever?! A 13yo searching for romance and finding the guy to take away her virginity?! I mean seriously – WTF?!


    The story line alone is already scary…

  • Bay

    Very wierd. I would not want my young kid see that movie. Who thoungt that this was a great idea for a movie? A young girl old looking to get laid.

  • Diane

    A bad boy “worthy” of taking her virginity? Sounds like a terrible film!

  • Kaz simply smashing !!!!!!!

    I love elle she’s cute!!

  • http://Ta Sligo ^_^ cute

    H r u elle

  • erin

    This movie actually sounds really good. I can’t wait for it.
    BUT I do have one problem with it… a 13 year old losing her virginity is not a good message to send. They should have upped the age and found an older actress.

  • Ash

    Vera Farmiga is a PHENOMENAL actress but this sounds..well meh next»»»»»

  • sara

    The premise sounds slightly disturbing, tbh. She’s too young.

  • tina

    hounddog?like sis

  • Lurker

    Why would her mother approved such a script? Elle is a good actress but she iS too young for that particular role. Her sister Dakota who is equally talented should replace her.

  • Michele

    Disturbing stirrings. Not a movie I’ll be seeing no matter how could the performances may be.

  • Marieme

    Huh? Thirteen years old and looking for sex? I totally hate this premise. How utterly stupid.

  • Elaine

    a 13-year old girl looking for a bad boy to take her virginity? There is a name for them honey, they are called pedophiles or creepy classmates. I bet they are going to tart Elle up for the movie too. Well it’s up to her parents to decide if this is appropriate for their young daughter to be in. She was on the Tonight show and seems like a REALLY YOUNG 13, like almost a 10 year old in her naive behavior. But this is hollywood.

  • anon


    The movie’s description is about a 13 yr old. Nowhere did I read the movie was FOR 13 yr olds.

  • anon

    By the way most of you are just a little too prurient in your assumptions about this ‘yet to be made movie’. An Italian movie made a few years ago, ‘Ginger and Cinnamon’ had an identical story line and it was cute and charming.

  • Cute

    She’s the prettier Fanning.

  • kay09

    Why have a young actress star in a movie and/or play a role that a child of the same age wouldn’t be able to go see. That’s is why SOME child stars are jacked up, because they get thrown in these adult situations. On&off camera. Totally Inappropriate!!!!!

  • Cherry

    I hope she doesn’t ruin her career, which is going great for her at the moment. I wish her all the success. and luck. the theme is kinda disturbing, i hope she knows what she’s getting herself into..anyhow wish it’d do good for her career, not ruin it. Because some movies have the potential to do that. Become more famous Elle and please please choose the right projects.
