The Fits :- Watch The Fits on Youtube on Fire,The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni-a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted.You have to be in a specific sort of mood, and in a peculiar frame of mind, to fully immerse yourself into a film like “The Fits” and walk away feeling like you’ve just seen something special. Actually, first-time feature film director Anna Rose Holmer draws a very thin line between “special” and “disposable.” With her (undoubtedly unique) approach to the age-old genre of the coming-of-age story, she’s either showing exceptional courage or completely exposing her lack of experience. It’s a bit of both, but by the end of the film, one gets the impression that her way of getting her feet wet was to armstand dive straight into it, which should be admired even by those who aren’t enticed to follow her into the water. There’s vision here, clearly, and through the use of eye-catching frames and a standout score, “The Fits” works like magic as an experimental performance piece. As an engaging work of well-rounded cinema, however, there are more than a few missteps.Much rests on the gaunt shoulders of 9-year-old Royalty Hightower. She stars as Toni, our protagonist, and she hardly leaves our sight for the entire 72 minutes — from the first push-up to the final look toward the sky. “The Fits” is unequivocally told from her POV, as she gradually gravitates from one end of her Cincinnati gymnasium to the other: from a world of boys and boxing to a world of girls and dancing. Her best friend Beezy (Alexis Neblett), an absolute bundle of joy, and her older brother Jermaine (De’Sean Minor), a background prop at this stage of her adolescence, saunter in and out on occasion to playfully mess with this POV, but it’s really all about Toni. Once she gets accepted into the Lionesses Dance Team — an all-girl squad specializing in competitive drill dance — Toni is determined and inspired to master the furiously choreographed movements.
