After the success of working with unknown youths in his Palme d'Or-winning "The Class," Laurent Cantet decided to go down the same path for his latest effort behind the camera, the teen-feminist rebellion tale "Foxfire," adapted once before as a 1992 Annette Haywood-Carter film starring a young Angelina Jolie and Jenny Lewis.

Memento now have a number of first look images of the leading gang in Cantet's adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates' "Foxfire: Confessions Of A Girl Gang," which follows the five teenagers from a small town in New York State in the 1950s who, out of their distrust of society, form a secret group called Foxfire to avenge the brutal humiliations they have suffered at the hands of men.

Cantet has gone with newcomers Claire Mazerolle, Kate Coseni and Madeleine Bisson, who are anything but household names, as his leads. But in his hands, we're fascinated to see what they can bring to the table. Surprisingly, despite his acclaimed history on the Croisette, the film was previously noted to be working towards a premiere in Toronto this fall.
