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

Brattle passes accepted. Special, Usher, and Producer members may reserve seats here.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
