MOXIE comes to Netflix


Based on the novel by Jennifer Mathieu, and directed by Amy Poehler, MOXIE is coming to Netflix in March.


MOXIE stars Hadley Robinson, Lauren Tsai, Josephine Langford, and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

The film follows 16-year-old Vivian. Fed up with the sexist and toxic status quo at her high school, Vivian finds inspiration from her mother's rebellious past and anonymously publishes a zine that sparks a school-wide, coming-of-rage revolution.

The movie takes audiences into the halls of East Rockport High School, where misogyny runs rampant among the teen student population, and it's completely common for young women to be belittled, harassed, and held to very different standards than their male counterparts.

At first, Vivian does her best to stay under the radar and avoid unwanted attention, but when a new student points out just how unacceptable the culture of the school really is, Vivian rethinks her own complicity in maintaining the status quo.

She also learns that her mother spent most of her youth protesting the patriarchy, which inspires Vivian to create an anonymous zine in which she airs her grievances about the school's bad behaviours and invites others to show their support for making a change.

Moxie is a story about resilience, self-empowerment, and the need to recognize and root out toxic behaviours - all wrapped up in the trappings of a great high school comedy.

Here's the official trailer:
