Premiering at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, the first trailer for The Fits has arrived. Per Shadow and Act:
Oscilloscope Laboratories has set a summer 2016 USA release for its portrait of female adolescence, “The Fits,” from director Anna Rose Holmer, her feature film debut, based on a script she co-wrote with Saela Davis and Lisa Kjerulff. Told from the perspective of a young tomboy, “The Fits” follows Toni, an 11-year-old assimilating into a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End, when a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, and her desire for acceptance is twisted. The festival darling, and critically-acclaimed drama (which made its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival last year) stars Royalty Hightower, Alexis Neblett, Da’Sean Minor, Lauren Gibson, Makyla Burnam, and Inayah Rodgers.
