It's been a while since we've talked about Laurent Cantet's "Foxfire," and well, that's because there hasn't been much to talk about. While the movie marks the director's followup to his Palme d'Or-winning "The Class," when it premiered last year at TIFF, it didn't make much noise, and as far as we know, it's still without any U.S. distribution. But the movie has already opened across the pond, and as such, two clips from the movie have arrived.

It's been a while since we've talked about Laurent Cantet's "Foxfire," and well, that's because there hasn't been much to talk about. While the movie marks the director's followup to his Palme d'Or-winning "The Class," when it premiered last year at TIFF, it didn't make much noise, and as far as we know, it's still without any U.S. distribution. But the movie has already opened across the pond, and as such, two clips from the movie have arrived.

In adapting Joyce Carol Oates' celebrated novel, Cantet rounded up some newcomers—Claire Mazerolle, Kate Coseni and Madeleine Bisson—to lead the story of 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 humiliations they have suffered at the hands of men. And if anything, these two scenes showcase the chemistry of the actresses and underscore an almost documentary like approach from Cantet in capturing the story. But whether or not it all works, we'll just have to wait until we get a chance to see this film for ourselves. (Whenever that will be....)

For those of you in the U.K., "Foxfire" is now playing in limited release and is available on VOD.
