Amy Poehler has returned to direct another original feature-length comedy for Netflix, Moxie, based on the YA novel written by Jennifer Mathieu back in 2017, and will be hitting Netflix in March!
The official Netflix synopsis reads, ‘Fed up with the sexist and toxic status quo at her high school, a shy 16-year-old finds inspiration from her mother’s rebellious past and anonymously publishes a zine that sparks a school-wide, coming-of-rage revolution.’
Feautring After’s Josephine Langford and The Walking Dead’s Sydney Park, the upcoming teen girl-power movie comes after Poehler’s last directorial, Wine Country, and the actress will also be taking on the role as Hadley Robison, Vivian’s cool mum.
Meanwhile, her daughter sparks a feminist zine to protest against the sexist norms at her high schools, where guys rank girls on “hot lists” and girls get sent home for wearing tank tops.
But it seems that the grown-ups might just be more interesting than the kids in this teen movie, as the faculty is played by Marcia Gay Harden and Ike Barinholtz.
Moxie comes out on March 3rd!
