Movie Info

Lou and her best friend Chantal plan to get out of their isolated, run-down town and move to a city far, far away. When Chantal's unstable and possessive ex violates her during a night of partying, the girls decide to exact their revenge on him through a night of vandalism and debauchery. The consequences of their actions are devastating, threatening the girls' chances of ever leaving. The more Lou fights tooth-and-nail to save her friendship and hold onto her dreams, the more she spins out of control as she begins to realize that freedom will come at a high cost.

  • [Firecrackers] sizzles with the promise of a confident voice behind the camera.

  • "Firecrackers..." pens with a flare of fury and ends on a note of anxious optimism. What happens between is often sensed more than spoken: This is a movie that, like its characters, is more fluent in feelings than in words.

  • Firecrackers is not nearly as casually joyful as its title suggests, but it is absolutely as incendiary.

    Sep 7, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • From the first frame to the last, Firecrackers is clearly a story by women, about women, stubbornly through their gaze without regrets. For a first feature, it is an incredible accomplishment and one that deserves to be seen.
