An orphan girl (Elle Fanning) has big dreams of becoming a ballerina. Her friend Victor (Dane DeHaan) decides to help her run away from the small town where they live in order to get her into a ballet school in Paris.

Although she has no formal training, she gets a position as a pupil at the prestigious school. It soon becomes clear that she has a lot of work to do in order to keep up with the other students, who've been training for years. She will dance off against her rival ballerina Camille (Maddie Ziegler), for a coveted part in the ballet recital.

  • 5 stars "I loved it. it is an incredible movie, but I didn't like the Felicie/Rudolph pairing and the Felicie/Victor pairing, I think they're too young for that stuff"
  • 4 stars "A thoroughly enjoyable film for kids of all ages, not just girls. The CGI artwork, voice talents & soundtrack are all excellent. The story-line, though predictable, works well. A sure-fire Oscar nominee."
  • 5 stars "The movie is wonderful and if you are a ballet fan it will become one of your favorite movies. This is a movie you will want to see live in a theater rather than on a smaller screen at home. Support the incredible artists that made this for us by seeing it in your local theater if you can!! Delightful!!!!"
