FOXES, director Adrian Lyne’s first feature, is set in Los Angeles. It centres on Jeanie (Jodie Foster) and her teenage friends Annie (Cherie Currie), Madge (Marilyn Kagan), and Dierdre (Kandice Stroh), who spend more time with each other–often sleeping in Jeanie’s bedroom–than they do with their families. They young women represent a spectrum of teen behaviour: the outgoing Deirdre is flirtatious; the overweight Madge, shy; and Jeanie, as the mature caretaker of the group, is quite concerned about Annie, whose negative relationship with her policeman father tempts her to self-destructive acts. Madge falls for the wealthy Jay (Randy Quaid), and when he leaves town for a few days the four take over his place. They hold a party, but things get out of hand–Annie ends up in the hospital, and Jay is furious. When Annie escapes from the hospital, Jeanie sets out to find her. In FOXES Lyne and scriptwriter Gerald Ayers explore the lives of the girls, their relationships with their parents, and how they deal with boys, sex, and drugs. The movie is backed by Giorgio Moroder’s score and features strong performances, especially by Foster, Currie, Sally Kellerman as Jeanie’s mother, and Scott Baio as Annie’s friend.
