It’s time to come together, ladies!
In Amy Poehler’s latest teen comedy, based on a novel by Jennifer Mathieu, a shy 16-year-old (Hadley Robinson) decides to push back against the sexist status quo at high school by calling it out in an underground zine called Moxie after learning of her mother’s empowering past. This causes new friendships to forge across clique and club lines, leading to a school-wide girl power revolution aimed at tearing down the toxicity.
Backed by Bikini Kill’s punk rock anthem “Rebel Girl,” Moxie’s trailer promises to deliver some high-energy feminist fun. We’re ready for the revolt and to, of course, see Amy Poehler as an actual ‘cool mom.’
Moxie, directed by Poehler, hits Netflix on March 3.
