2012 | 90 min. minutes | Rated NR

A documentary that follows six young ballet dancers as they manage disintegrated toenails, scabby heels, and obsessive parents who show their love by tugging on their children's heads to make their necks look longer while also reminding them they've only got about 10 good years left. You do not need to have any interest in ballet for this movie to be completely engrossing. It's So You Think You Can Dance for the OPB crowd, swapping out crunking for a ton of elegant leaps and spins. Or it's Spellbound, if Spellbound had been beautifully costumed. And full of bloody feet.
