THE FITS – dir Anna Rose Holmer

Held Over by Popular Demand!

Area Premiere July 22 – August 2

(2015) dir Anna Rose Holmer w/Royalty Hightower, Da’Sean Minor, Alexis Neblett, Inayah Rodgers, Makyla Burnam [72 min; DCP]
In Anna Rose Holmer’s dazzling, Cincinnati-set debut feature, eleven-year-old tomboy Toni (mesmerizing newcomer Royalty Hightower) spends her afternoons boxing at a gym with her older brother. Bewitched by the power and confidence of a tight-knit dance group also practicing there, Toni begins to eagerly absorb their routines, and even pierces her own ears in an effort to fit in. But when a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance becomes more complicated and perhaps dangerous. Gorgeously shot and with a hypnotic score, THE FITS is a transformative experience and a singular portrait of adolescence. – Notes from The Metrograph, NYC

★★★★ “‘The Fits’ is what independent moviemaking should be and can be in this country.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“The Fits is more than a transporting film experience. It’s cinema poetry in motion.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critics’ Pick “A singular first feature from the young director Anna Rose Holmer, who’s made a movie that can feel like a memory.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“The Fits” and its electrifying young star give getting in formation renewed meaning, with inspiring, self-assured verve.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“‘The Fits’ pulls you in and won’t let go.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
