Synopsis

In 1953 New York, with a violent post-war culture controlled by men, a group of headstrong teenage girls unite into a sisterhood of blood: they form the Foxfire gang, a secret female-only society. The second screen adaptation of the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates.

Critics reviews

Despite its grand philosophical ambitions, Foxfire is let down by chugging, bloated storytelling and its ugly tranche of single-purpose characters. In order that we remain on the side of the gang, Cantet often paints their victims as vile stereotypes of sexual deviousness or economic entitlement. Even the girls rarely interact in a way that doesn’t inelegantly nudge their ulterior motives to the fore.
