Amy Poehler Explains Her Approach To Making Movies After Directing Wine Country And Moxie

In the case of Moxie, Amy Poehler was clearly driven by spreading its important and powerful message about the impact of institutionalized sexism in modern teenage life. Based on the novel of the same name by author Jennifer Mathieu, the film stars Hadley Robinson as Vivian, a shy 16-year-old who finds inspiration from her mother (Poehler) and a bold new classmate (Alycia Pascual-Pena) to start a feminist revolution at her high school via a self-published zine. Lauren Tsai co-stars as Vivian’s best friend, Claudia, and the supporting cast includes Ike Barinholtz, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sabrina Haskett, Sydney Park, Josie Totah, Nico Hiraga, and Marcia Gay Harden.
