★★★★ review by Brandon Hart on Letterboxd
Patrick Stewart stew-rred the pot of my emotions, man.
★★★★ review by Sarah McMullan on Letterboxd
The cast in this is phenomenal though it's Stewart that steals the show, on screen for almost the entire 2 and a bit hours.
Like so many film adoptions of stage productions, the quick and complex dialogue sometimes feels at odds with the intimate atmosphere the camera creates. It really makes me want to see this on the stage!
Not really a ballet film, it's more about the drama of human relationships set against the arts world.
(If you're here for tutus & pointe shoes this is not your film!)
★★★½ review by Guy Incognito on Letterboxd
An unexpected surprise with a wonderful performance from Patrick Stewart.
★★★½ review by Brian Taylor on Letterboxd
A brilliant performance by Patrick Stewart and a good film about the search for a parent you never knew
★★★½ review by Emily on Letterboxd
patrick stewart is so good in this. afraid I might've found the film's initial slow burn plot, small cast, and tight setting boring had his performance not been so enjoyable and interesting to watch.
