Writer’s Life

Exploring the lives and trajectories of writers has become a fairly common film trope, since the movies are written by, well, writers. But the best films about writers elevate themselves far beyond navel-gazing, from Charlie Kaufman's artful deconstruction of self in Adaptation to the surrealism of Barton Fink to Cynthia Nixon's idiosyncratic Emily Dickinson in A Quiet Passion.

The Fits

Directed by Anna Rose Holmer

- Rated NR - 72 Minutes - 2015

A surreal microbudget indie from first-time director Anna Rose Holmer, The Fits follows young Toni, who trains in a boxing gym with her brother, but gradually decides to join the other girls on the dance team. One by one, the girls are stricken with seizure and trance-like episodes, perhaps as an indication of oncoming adolescence, which is mysterious in and of itself.
