    A queer college freshman joins her university’s rowing team and undertakes an obsessive physical and psychological journey to make it to the top varsity boat, no matter the cost.

     

    An overachieving mindset presented through the lens of a psychological thriller yields propulsively intense results and a fiery, obsessive performance from Isabelle Fuhrman in writer and director Lauren Hadaway’s narrative feature debut, The Novice. Intriguingly, that compulsive need for accomplishment is applied to college rowing, a sport dependent on teamwork rather than individual achievements. One could argue that pushing their body to the limit and focusing on personal improvement, times, and growth doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things considering the most effective way to win races is to function in synchronicity as cohesive a unit as possible.

     

    Composer Alex Weston on Making Waves in "The Novice"

     

    An overachieving mindset presented through the lens of a psychological thriller yields propulsively intense results and a fiery, obsessive performance from Isabelle Fuhrman in writer and director Lauren Hadaway’s narrative feature debut, The Novice. Intriguingly, that compulsive need for accomplishment is applied to college rowing, a sport dependent on teamwork rather than individual achievements. One could argue that pushing their body to the limit and focusing on personal improvement, times, and growth doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things considering the most effective way to win races is to function in synchronicity as cohesive a unit as possible.

     

    Given that the team mascot also happens to be a raven, Lauren Hadaway takes advantage of that detail to implement an Edgar Allen Poe reminiscent flavor to the self-inflicted psychological torment, with both audible heartbeats and hallucinations of ravens themselves. Now take Edgar Allen Poe and mashing together with the tone of a Darren Aranofsky horror mind-fuck and replace Whiplash‘s drumming with rowing, and you get a perfect sense of what The Novice is.

     

    The Novice (2021) - UNCUT

     

    While all of this continues to punish Alex in ways that increasingly become hard to watch (and will assuredly be triggering for some), she does form two compelling connections. The first is with fellow rowing athlete Jamie Brill (Amy Forsyth, who recently had a brief but charming supportive turn in the outstanding CODA), practically the only other girl giving the sport her all as she desperately needs the scholarship up for grabs. Naturally, questions arise as to how much of this is a genuine friendship and how much of it is Alex thrilled by having real competition within the team. Also, in one of the weaker subplots, Alex ends up in an undefined romantic dynamic with her teacher’s assistant Dani (Dilone), which mostly seems to exist as a vessel for Alex to dish out exposition regarding her past and what drives her to torturous excellence.

    The Novice doesn’t so much provide answers but rather explanations. There’s a sense of why Alex is doing this, and while it might not be relatable, it’s more than enough to empathize with her, hoping she seeks out mental help alongside her success. It’s a bleak story of seemingly impossible levels of drive and ambition, one that gradually shifts from drama into hallucinatory horror. There may be missing pieces and undercooked elements within the narrative itself, but Isabelle Furman is a repeated lightning bolt of momentum, ensuring The Novice reaches the finish line as a confident, rattling debut.
