Storyline

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. Written by The Fits

I won't go into detail because...
3 December 2016 | by consuelo pazSee all my reviews

"The Fits" is a surrealist film and it should be seen as one. Not everyone is a fan of surrealism and that is why they dislike this movie so much, but do not be discouraged if you do not understand every part of "The Fits", it is meant to make you think. I will say, the acting is excellent, specifically the lead, and everything is beautifully shot. If you are seeing this movie and have never seen a surrealist film, do not be discouraged, instead look into surrealist film and use this movie as an example, because it's a wonderful one. 9/10 is a little high for me but I believe this movie is misunderstood and it deserves reviews from people who understand it or at least try to.
