Good movie, teenage girls will love

An enjoyable drama about a determined ballet-dancer. Most teenage girls will love it. I first watched it at school when I was eleven, then rewatched it again and again. Has a little sexual content, nothing too explicit, and deals with anorexia ultimately in a good, moral way.
not rated for age


Could have gone without the elephant and mouse joke. Didn't make sense. And could have easily been toned down in a few other ways. But still a good movie. Entretainig if nothing else.
