Martin Amis once wrote: “In my experience, the thing about girls is – you never know”. And how eerily suitable for a film like The Fits, Anna Rose Holmer’s debut feature, which sparks your interest in how unassuming its drama unfolds. We’re casually tossed into a Cincinnati recreational center that’s divided by its masculine boxing ring and feminine tumbling gym. In between we find the pre-teen Toni (Royalty Hightower) with her brother sparring in a boxing ring. At an awkward age where every action seems to possess cosmic significance, Toni looks at the young women of the rec center’s dance troupe and yearns to be part of what seems like a separate and exclusive club.
