Director:Anna Rose Holmer
The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni — a tomboy assimilating into a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted. Holmer’s new film is one of the most exciting works emerging from the new US Indie scene. Truly a triumphant ensemble of detail.
