Audience Reviews for Foxfire

  • Oct 13, 2013
    20-year-old Angelina Jolie stars as teenage drifter Legs Sadovsky who emboldens four misfit girls to stand up for themselves - and each other. The female bonding subgenre was a rarity for 1996, but unfortunately this screenplay is about as aimless as some of the girls themselves. Additionally the acting isn't very strong apart from Jolie who commands attention in every scene with her good looks (despite the Jackie Chan haircut) and knife-edge comportment. Definitely worth watching for Jolie devotees, <i>Foxfire</i> also exhibits some striking use of color and light, and a memorably long, seductive tattoo scene hypnotically set to Mazzy Star's "Into Dust." Some other good songs on the soundtrack that qualifies as among the '90s most eccentric by including music ranging from Kristin Hersh to mainstream jazz to The Cramps to the pan flute!

    Foxfire is a provocative and compelling coming-of-age film that looks at teenage rebellion and the search for identity. The story follows a drifter named Legs that strolls into a high school one day and ends up changing the lives of four girls who end up forming a unique bond of friendship. Angelina Jolie shines in this film, and really shows the star power and charisma that she's capable of. The film does a good job at handling the serious themes and keeps the characters grounded and real. However, the plot takes some odd turns and goes to extremes. While it's flawed, Foxfire presents an interesting and challenging look at the struggles of the youth culture.

    Angelina Jolie, Dash Mihok, Hedy Burress, Peter Facinelli The story of five teenage girls who form an unlikely bond after beating up a teacher who has sexually harassed them. They build a solid friendship but their wild ways begin to get out of control. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Really liked this movie. Some of the early works of Angelina Jolie. Thought she was great in it. Loved how all the girls, even though are very different from each other, come together and kick their perverted teacher's ass. LOL.. Shows you that one event in your life can bring you to befriend some people you would normally never even have a conversation with. A "girl power" movie.

    This film had solidifyiedthat she could act, and Indeed had what it takes to become a great actress. The acting of the five leading woman was superb, and "Haywood-Carter's: Direction was sensational. It made you belive "Jolie" would become the greatest and most versital actress of the modern times. Midly Reccomended.
