The Fits (2015)

While training at the gym 11-year-old tomboy Toni becomes entranced with a dance troupe. As she struggles to fit in she finds herself caught up in danger as the group begins to suffer from fainting spells and other violent fits. (72 minutes.)
It's refreshing to see a film so committed to its own rules and style (all on a micro budget); a film that doesn't compromise itself or its intentions. The mystery remains intact and the questions reverberate off the empty gym walls. Toni watches. What she sees and what she feels is up to the viewer to decide.

You honestly don’t know what to expect, and when the film is done, you’re not exactly sure what has happened. Again, Holmer isn’t going to tell you. It may sound frustrating. Instead, it is immensely satisfying.This film has a 98% critics / 57% audience rating on rottentomatos.com. It's currently viewable on Amazon Prime.
