The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni—a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End. Enamoured by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted.

"abstract and atmospheric, intense and surprisingly emotional" ★★★★ Time Out

“an audacious, spectacular coming-of-age mystery” ★★★★ Guardian

"The Fits is a dreamy, beautifully syncopated coming-of-age tale." - Manohla Dargis, The NYTimes

"First-time writer-director Anna Rose Holmer crafts a meticulous mood of psychological isolation and beguiling mystery through her metaphorical tale." - Nick Schager, Variety
