The Novice (15)

Still from The Novice

Lauren Hadaway's electrifying debut feature follows Alex (Isabelle Fuhrman) and her singular obsession with the university rowing team.

A fascinating exploration of a young woman's pursuit of greatness, The Novice depicts the gruelling psychological and physical transformation Alex undertakes in her search for belonging. As the training takes its toll, Alex loses all connections to the world outside of rowing, allowing Hadaway to take an unflinching look at the triumphs and traumas involved in obsessive perfectionism.
