The Fits

The Fits

Directed by Anna Rose Holmer

Eleven-year-old tomboy Toni (a showstopping Royalty Hightower) is bewitched by the tight-knit dance team she sees practicing in the same Cincinnati gymnasium where she boxes. Enamored by the power and confidence of the strong community of girls, Toni spends less and less time boxing with her older brother, and instead eagerly absorbs the dance routines and masters drills from a distance, and even pierces her own ears in an effort to fit in. But when a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance becomes more complicated. Gorgeously shot and with a mesmerizing score, THE FITS is a transformative experience and a marvelous portrait of adolescence.

One of the most critically acclaimed films of 2016, and a standout hit at Sundance, The Fits is a poetic and mesmerizing coming of age mystery that follows an 11-year-old girl whose local dance team is suddenly plagued by random episodes of unexplained ‘fits.’

Cast: Royalty Hightower, Alixis Neblett, Da'Sean Minor, Lauren Gibson, Makyla Burnam, Inayah Rodgers, Q-Kidz Dance Team

I m sure this was based on a true story. Question for for viewers... Same facility fot boys and girls but only the girls were getting sick... HMMMMM Is this a form of legal genocide? No future generations coming from this group of children, if they lived.
