Experimental feature

Laurent Cantet, 2012


Beware the rage of an abused, neglected teenage girl. Foxfire could be the result: a band of angry teen misfits in small-town 1950s Canada, bound by their gang-oath to exact revenge against the staid community that rejects them.

Are their extortion stunts and acts of small rebellion sad, mad or just plain evil? Laurent The Class Cantet cleverly evokes the girls’ chameleon emotions as a final scheme goes predictably, horribly, wrong.
