An early film for the legendary Angelina Jolie prior to her ?Bradgelina? days, Foxfire remains one of her less known projects from her youth which most fans may not be familiar with?possibly because it surely is not the best project on her resume. An minor film aimed seemingly at 1990s gothic teens with too much time on their hands, those interested in seeing a short-haired Angelina in a teen role (who already have seen 1995?s Hackers) may take more to this one than those expecting anything special.
This mostly bogus drama/thriller revolves around some attractive yet troubled teenage girls who form a gang (more of a cult actually) when a tall stranger (Jolie) stumbles into town and looks for various ways to create trouble at the local high school. They all think it is fun and games until things (unsurprisingly) get out of hand and they all end up suspended until further notice. The drama does not stop there, however as Legs (the name Jolie goes by) cannot go a day without causing a scandal and brings the rest of the group with her.
This intriguing but ultimately depressing flick has its entertaining parts and an attractive young cast, but the turns of events are so ridiculous it is hard to understand what the point is, overall. Those who remember the styles and grungy trends of 1990s high schoolers may find this a trip down memory lane and wonder if Nirvana will suddenly appear singing ?Smells Like Teen Spirit??if they care to go there in the first place. Angelina, herself surely looks at this in her early filmography and laughs at what a ridiculous film she chose to star in until better projects came along. Her fans may like it solely to see her ?topless? scene. Filmed in Portland, Oregon.
