The Fits (2016)

Anna Rose Holmer directs Royalty Hightower, Inayah Rodgers and Makyla Burnam in this teen movie where a young girl gives up boxing training at her community centre to try out for the dance troupe; The Lionesses.

Lots of beautiful composed shots of training and deserted public spaces give this a real power. The subplot about a series of faintings kinda overtakes the pleasure of the tomboy quietly reinventing herself but it all has a low stakes, elegant, eerie quality.
