Storyline

A group of four teenage girls in the San Fernando Valley, and the usual problems teenagers have to cope with. Deidre is fascinated by her sexuality, Madge is unhappily overweight, Annie is into booze and drugs, and Jeanie has to take care of all of them. They think that the school is a waste of time, their boyfriends are immature, and that they are alienated from the adults in their lives. Jeanie is most worried about Annie and risks her neck more than once trying to keep Annie clean and safe-and-sound. But Annie's unstable behavior and flare keeps everyone on edge, and finally leads to her death in a car wreck. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Great soundtrack & the film takes me back to the late 70's.
10 October 1998 | by (Sydney, AUSTRALIA) – See all my reviews

"Foxes" is one movie I remember for it's portrayal of teenagers in the late 1970's. As I am exactly Jodie Foster's age, I related to this movie. It deals with the frustrations, temptations, relationships & rebellion of youth. The soundtrack is great with inspiring rock eg. "More Than a Feeling" by Boston and sad numbers like "On the Radio" by Donna Summer. The music of my late teens. Yep, I'll always remember this one, even if it wasn't huge.
