Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang

In a small town in 1950s New York, a gang of teenage girls under the radical, feminist leadership of ”Legs” (Raven Adamson) start out doing pranks on a teacher, but they soon move on to more dangerous adventures. The first adaptation of the Joyce Carol Oates novel came in 1996 and changed important aspects of the story. This one is closer to the source material and emphasizes differences between haves and have-nots, as well as the precarious lives of girls in general. OK cast, but far too conventional, with unconvincing Canadian locations. 

2012-France-Canada. 143 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed by Laurent Cantet. Novel: Joyce Carol Oates. Cast: Raven Adamson (Margaret ”Legs” Sadovsky), Katie Coseni (Madeleine ”Maddy” Wirtz), Madeleine Bisson (Elizabeth ”Rita” O’Hagan), Claire Mazerolle, Paige Moyles, Rachael Nyhuus.

Trivia: French title: Foxfire: Confessions d’un gang de filles.
