The Fits

Presented by Nightlight Cinema at Nightlight Cinema, Akron OH

Jun 24 - 30 2016
The Fits

The Fits is extremely insightful about that perilous time in a girl’s life when she is still a child but, because of her body’s natural processes, won’t be for much longer. It can be traumatic because inside she is still a little kid. Toni is comfortable in the boys’ world, and Royalty Hightower is totally believable as a young and competent athlete. She moves through the girls’ world like a ghost, or maybe it’s the Lionesses who are the ghosts. Whether she’s ready or not, Toni is about to be a part of it.

It’s refreshing to see a film so committed to its own rules and style (all on a micro budget); a film that doesn’t compromise itself or its intentions. The mystery remains intact and the questions reverberate off the empty gym walls. Toni watches. What she sees and what she feels is up to the viewer to decide. The Fits inspires conversation. We need more films like it.   — Sheila O’Malley, rogerebert.com
