Beautifully told story that tackles a domain not many have taken on in the bullying discussion - the dance world. Having grown up in this world myself, I can relate to the truth behind this story. The ending is a bit far-fetched, but charming. This film is well executed from the camera work, to the acting, to the background music, editing - all is commendable. This would make a lovely addition to any youth or family film festival. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Juror. Kudos to the filmmaker for creating such a lovely short film.
When 13-year-old Gabrielle signs up for ballet, she encounters bullying from her teacher -- and friendship in an unexpected place. A story about friendship, overcoming bullies, body image, and knowing your worth.
