The Fits

The Fits

Summary

Anna Rose Holmer bears a nomination for Best First Feature at the upcoming Independent Spirit Awards. The Fits is a vital coming-of-age drama set in and around a Cincinnati rec center and is built around a revelatory performance by young actress Royalty Hightower. The NY Times' Manohla Dargis said, "The miracle of the movie is that, like [protagonist] Toni, it transcends blunt, reductive categorization partly because it's free of political sloganeering, finger wagging and force-fed lessons. Any uplift that you may feel won't come from having your ideas affirmed, but from something ineluctable - call it art."
