First Look: Laurent Cantet’s FOXFIRE
It’s almost that time of the year. The best time of the year. No, not the summer movie season, even though that may be enjoyable. We are coming up to the part of the year where the prestige film festivals start rolling out, with the biggest of arthouse guns coming in tow.
One of the more interesting films looking to possibly (although highly unlikely) make its way to this year’s Cannes Film Festival is THE CLASS helmer Laurent Cantet’s next film, FOXFIRE.
Based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel of the same name, the film is anticipating its (more likely) debut at the TIFF later this year, but thanks to Memento (hat tip to The Playlist) we now have our first look at this feminist tale. Starring the likes of Claire Mazerolle, Kate Coseni and Madeleine Bisson, the film will follow a group of teens in New York who create a group to take revenge on those men who have wronged them.
Based on these photos, the film is not only a gorgeous little piece of work, but it’s also one of the most interesting art house projects coming down the pipeline. I adored THE CLASS, and the idea of Cantet working with youths once again is really intriguing. Hopefully we’ll be seeing this sucker earlier, rather than later.
