Movie Reviews

An inspiring and, yes, sad movie
RE | USA | 06/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Honestly, the only reason I bought this movie was because of Larisa Oleynik. Being a longtime fan, I have to say that I was thrilled to see her back acting, and I was pleasantly surprised and quite glad that she did such a great movie as this... And she did an amazing job. It is a very emotional, and somewhat depressing movie... if you let it be. In the moment of being about to lose virtualy everything, she presses on and makes the most of what time she has left. I found it to be incredibly inspiring, with a great message of how it's better to fully live and enjoy what life you have left than suffer excruciating pain to merely allow you to get by.

I recommend this movie, not as a dance movie, although it is obviously filled w/ great dance scenes, but as a good movie in general..."

"I saw this in the vidoe shop & didn't bother really reading the back as I'm an avid dance fan so I thought it would be ok. I was surprised at what enfolded as I watched, a story of love & dedication, of achieving your goals despite the set backs life can give us.
It was more than the usual dance movie, it portraid a story of a young girl who has lived to dance all her life, and when she's finally almost where she wants to be, fighting to reach her ultimate dream - acceptance at Juliard.Anyone who enjoys dance movies will enjoy this one but you may find a tissue may be handy also. I found myself re-thinking my life & realising everyday is a bonus, live life now whilest you can."
Surprisingly amazing

"Wow is all I can say. I expected another cheesy dance movie (not that that is bad!). As a dancer, I still enjoy any movie about dance, even the extremely cheesy ones. This one, however, reached far beyond the typical "dance movie" storyline. It incorporated love, bonds, friendship, determination, and realism. It went beyond following the main character and delved into the personalities of all involved. So, the difference between this movie and other typical dance movies, is that it grips your heart and makes you want to be a better person because anything can happen at any time."
