THE FITS – dir Anna Rose Holmer

Double Feature with IXCANUL

(2015) dir Anna Rose Holmer w/Royalty Hightower [72 min; DCP]
This lyrical, nearly-perfect debut film follows Toni (Hightower), a young tomboy who becomes increasingly fascinated with a competitive dance troupe that practices at her local rec center. Toni’s decision to join the troupe coincides with mysterious fainting fits that begin to strike the members and she finds herself exposed to more than just the first flush of adolescence.

“★★★★! A nearly perfect thing, made with such assurance that every shot holds weight and widens your heart… 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
