For his first North American movie the acclaimed French filmmaker Laurent Cantet (The Class; Time Out) came to Canada to film Joyce Carol Oates’ novel about a girl gang in the 1950s. Inspired by their leader, "Legs", the gang fights back against disciplinarian school masters, abusive employers, predatory males and neglectful parents — eventually establishing their own quasi-"collective". "A frequently thrilling evocation of teen lives." Empire

"A frequently thrilling evocation of teen lives. Proof that The Class and Time Out were no pan flashes. 4/5"—Angie Errigo, Empire

"Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a riveting and emotionally engaging drama with some thought-provoking ideas and terrific performances from its young cast of unknowns. Highly recommended."—Matt Turner, View

"As beautiful as it is surprising, Cantet’s Foxfire girls appear like the ancestors of Pussy Riot."—Les Inrockuptibles
