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. As gripping as it is unique, this thrillingly kinetic film marks debuting writer-director Anna Rose Holmer as a singular talent.

'Remember the name Anna Rose Holmer, who makes her feature directing debut with this unique and unforgettable mesmerizer'. Rolling Stone

'First-time writer-director Anna Rose Holmer crafts a meticulous mood of psychological isolation and beguiling mystery through her metaphorical tale'. Variety

'The Fits is a dreamy, beautifully syncopated coming-of-age tale'. The NYTimes
