In a May 2019 interview with Christine Smallwood in the New York Times Magazine, Laura Dern recalled that Foxes was her first credited role and her first substantial acting role, Her character, Debbie, was supposed to be 11 years old, and Dern herself was only a little older than that. In one scene, Debbie lies about using a diaphragm to make herself seem more experienced and sophisticated than she is; in the 2019 interview, Dern recounted that the film's director and producer asked her if she was comfortable with he dialogue, and her response was that she didn't understand why she would be uncomfortable, since a diaphragm was just the muscle in your abdomen that expands and contracts when you breathe. Dern had never heard of the meaning of the word "diaphragm" that was relevant to her dialogue: the barrier form of birth control. See more »

Not Just A Brilliant work of art, but one with a lesson...
I loved Jodi Foster, That chick from The Runaways-Cherie Currie, Scott Baio, Randy Quaid, Demone from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Brilliant cast. I truly believe this is the role Jodi should have won the Oscar for, but oddly enough it wasn't even nominated. Not only was this a great work of art, but one with a lesson.... That hitching rides with swinging, middle aged couples who look like rejects from Studio 54 not only proves to be creepy but fatal.
