Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Fits

A fine indie gem about a pubescent tomboy nervously/awkwardly/eagerly taking steps towards womanhood. But you haven't quite seen it all before, since just when you think you're in for lo-fi realism, the coming of womanhood is filtered through a strange, almost science fiction lens. The film has barely enough narrative material to fill 72 minutes, but its focus and imaginative rhythms are well worth your time.
