In a reverse of your typical stereotypes, main protagonist Toni is a
girl who actually starts out as a boxer (in training, mostly so that
her boxing brother can keep an eye on her while he trains) decides to
make a switch to the all-girl dance team that practices next door. It's
a great coming-of-age story about a girl trapped in a bubble she needs
When I saw the trailer, I noticed that the lead actress playing Toni is getting mad props for her performance, which she does deserve, but I also fell in love with the performance of the supporting actress whose plays Breezy, the friend that Toni makes when she joins the dance crew. The entire relationship was done simple and natural and yet sends a powerful message on friendship. Watching both of these young black actresses on the screen sharing scenes together made the movie for me.
There was a big metaphor in the movie that I did not fully understand about the girls having seizures because of contaminated water, it has something to do with fitting in but I'm not fully sure.
Otherwise, I absolutely enjoined this movie, especially the chemistry between the two young actors
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. Enamored 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.
