Foxfire marks a couple of firsts for the acclaimed French director Laurent Cantet, whose previous feature The Class won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and an Oscar nomination. It concerns a group of young women growing up in small-town America during the 1950s. Confronted with a patriarchal environment where men and boys are either predatory or condescending figures, the teenagers rebel, forming a fiercely protective all-female clique. Skilfully smuggling socio-political concerns within a thrilling drama, Foxfire features outstanding, natural performances from a cast of non-actors.
Foxfire runs at the IFI from August 9th-15th. BOOK NOW.
