The True Blood Sisterhood: Watch The First Trailer For Laurent Cantent's 'Foxfire'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist December 4, 2012 at 9:42AM

Though we thought "Foxfire," the latest from Laurent Cantet (the director of arthouse hit and Cannes winner "The Class") might have made a bigger splash when it premiered at TIFF in the fall, it arrived and left with a bit of a whisper. The film is still without North American distribution, a bit of an oddity considering it's based on Joyce Carol Oates' classic book, but it is rolling out overseas and hopefully that will give someone the push to take it on.

Though we thought "Foxfire," the latest from Laurent Cantet (the director of arthouse hit and Cannes winner "The Class") might have made a bigger splash when it premiered at TIFF in the fall, it arrived and left with a bit of a whisper. The film is still without North American distribution, a bit of an oddity considering it's based on Joyce Carol Oates' classic book, but it is rolling out overseas and hopefully that will give someone the push to take it on.

The first trailer for "Foxfire" has dropped, and it looks like an energetic, lively and raw take on the tale. The story follows a group of headstrong, adolescent girls who grow up amidst violence and frustration in 1950s upstate New York and go on to form the titular Firefox gang to rebel against those taking advantage of them. Cantet decided to go with a cast largely made up on unknowns and first-time actors to make up the girl gang, but it seems to have paid off, as the entire group of gals look very compelling in their roles. The period details also look nicely rendered, and taking it all in, we have to wonder why this flew under the radar in Toronto.

"Foxfire" opens in France on January 2, 2013. Check out the full trailer below along with some new images and the poster for the film.
