NASCAR OR BALLET cover image
Terrific film with a terrific message. Although it's about ballet and NASCAR, the theme applies to so many different things in life.

The story follows s young boy who is faced with a difficult decision to choose between his two passions - ballet and NASCAR - when a dress rehearsal for a ballet he is performing coincides with a NASCAR race his dad purchased tickets for. What will he choose?

Excellent production from camera work to editing. Acting is spot on. Trevor Anderson plays Micah with such confidence and conviction, you can see Micah in him. The rest of the cast is equally well positioned.

I love the story premise as it relates to so many other decisions that kids are faced with at this age, especially when they have parents, or one parent, willing and eager to create a lie in order for them to sway their child's choice. The dad here does exactly that, but kudos to the young boy for standing by his own belief.

The sets and locations are well selected, the background music fits. Altogether, this really hits the spot.

The message is about staying true to yourself, make choices based on what you want, not to please others.

I give this film 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST!

A ten-year-old boy must choose between his two passions and make his own choice while being influenced by family, friends and teachers.
