Oh god do we ever wish that this film had been around when we were in high school, trying to figure it all out. If your passion to fight the patriarchy has waned during the pandemic (we’re all tired) Amy Poehler’s Moxie, coming to Netflix on March 3, will fire it up.
Vivian (Hadley Robinson), a seemingly shy 16-year-old, has always preferred to keep her head down and fly under the radar. But when the arrival of a new student (Alycia Pascual-Peña) forces her to examine the unchecked behaviour of her fellow students running rampant at her high school, Vivian realizes she’s fed up.
Inspired by her mother’s (Amy Poehler) rebellious past, Vivian anonymously publishes an underground zine called Moxie to expose bias and wrongdoing in her high school, and unexpectedly sparks a movement. Now at the centre of a revolution, Vivian begins to forge new friendships with other young women and allies, reaching across the divide of cliques and clubs as they learn to navigate the highs and lows of high school together.
Whip-smart, funny, and all-around exceptional—we know you’re going to love Moxie.
