FIT Synopsis

Skins meets Glee when a last chance dance class becomes a therapeutic encounter between adolescents struggling with their ideas about sexuality and adulthood in a very British comedy, made with the support of gay, lesbian and bisexual charity, Stonewall.


Karmel likes make-up and trendy clothes, yet she also likes girls. Does she need to ‘fit’ the lesbian stereotype? Ryan is one of the lads. Computer games, beer and bullying is the name of his game, yet a secret crush on fellow pupil Tegs threatens to blow his cover. Isaac, meanwhile, uses muscles and a hot head to threaten his schoolmates with violence should they display a gay attitude in his vicinity. It is down to loud and proud drama teacher Loris and his pink leotard to show these kids that they share a lot more in common than they first thought.


FIT is the feature film adaptation of Stonewall’s highly successful play for schools aimed at tackling homophobic bullying, seen by more than 20,000 students around the UK.

Beyond being a quirky and engaging film, this is very eye-opening for most viewers.  Scenes of group forums and discussions on being gay, straight or lesbian and scenarios involving their situations reveal insightful views. The dance and drama classes under the tutelage of Loris (Blair)  were nevertheless stimulating and exploratory for the students and with sprinklings of Shakespeare trivia along the way. The central characters all have conflicts to hurdle and the issue of being homophobic was also likewise depicted in the film. Educational but also reflective of some pertinent issues that affect society. Check out this film and see for yourself why  "life is all about dance and drama".

Entertaining and with issues that strike a chord with the youth of today.  While it tackles homosexuality and being straight, those that are still grappling with their true identity and sexual orientation can likewise relate to it. Am immensely impressed with Loris, the drama and dance teacher in this film, who interestingly is the director and writer.  The cast also delivered commendable portrayals and viewers are sure to warm up easily to this heartwarming coming of age movie.
