Overview

One of actress Angelina Jolie's early efforts was the drama Foxfire, based on the book by Joyce Carol Oates. The film is presented in its original 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio and anamorphically enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs. This is a very fine-looking print that sports solid colors and dark black levels. While a small amount of edge enhancement pops up from time to time, overall this is a rather clean image that should please fans. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English. Needless to say, this is a very mediocre soundtrack that features little in the way of directional effects or surround sounds. While all of the dialogue, music, and effects are clear of any excessive hiss or distortion, it would have been nice to have seen this film get a much needed 5.1 remix. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. The only extra features available on this disc are a few theatrical trailers and a filmography on star Jolie.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
Whereas Joyce Carol Oats' source novel reflected the working-class sensibilities of tough '50s rebels, director Annette Haywood-Carter's film version is a '90s melodrama about pretty suburban victims. This adaptation choice drives the story in a predictable direction, suffering from stereotyped characters and forced dialogue. The supposed female bonding moments quickly fall into exploitation territory as the girls decide to take off their shirts and tattoo their breasts. However, Angelina Jolie is stunning as Legs Sadovsky, stealing the show with her screen presence and introducing the lesbian undertones. All attitude and style, Legs becomes the movie-friendly version of what a tough girl should be. While it is commendable that she helps the other girls fight back against the sexualized violence in the film, the payback plot feels contrived. A story of real unleashed rage this is not, but rather a sleek Hollywood fantasy of pseudo "girl power" with a modern rock soundtrack. Mindless fun for a few action scenes, Foxfire is recommended for fans of Angelina Jolie only.
