Bad influence? I think not!, 19 February 1999
Author: JubileeG from FL

I've always loved watching Angelina Jolie on screen... but watching her in "Foxfire" quite literally gave me *chills* (and still does). When Legs first walks into Maddy's classroom and they do that long, slow pan up - from head to foot - of Legs, you can instantly feel Angie's incredible magnetism and presence.

As much as people would like to point out the negative aspects of this film - that violence of any sort is "unladylike" or just plain wrong coming from females - "Foxfire" has got many more positive ones on its side.

Maddy and Legs' relationship is one of the warmest, most heartfelt I've ever seen portrayed on film ... Legs is not so much a maternal figure as she is a supportive driving force. She teaches each of the girls to respect themselves and not be ashamed or afraid to be who they are. If anything, I think it's Maddy that's the maternal one ... directing her loving and protective instincts towards Legs. Maddy teaches Legs to open up her heart and stop *running* long enough to realize that some people *can* love you and not abandon you (like her father) or die (like her mother). She teaches her to care again... to love again.
