Synopsis of the film

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.

Amy Poehler discusses how “Moxie” was developed

Kim Lessing, one of our producers at my production company Paper Kite, brought the book to me and was like, “You should check this out.  It’s a great read.” All the women in our office read it, and we were all really moved by the story and the idea that a revolution can start with one step.

I was interested in directing again after Wine Country. So we developed this movie from the very beginning. I called Jennifer Mathieu and talked through her original vision, found the writers to write the script, and were involved from start to finish, which has been the coolest.

Release date

The movie will be available on March 3, 2021.
