Storyline

A champion high school rugby player has a secret desire to be a ballet dancer, having spent 11 years in ballet school. Seizing an opportunity to audition for a local company's presentation of "Romeo and Juliet", he nonetheless fears what will happen to his reputation if the other kids in his school find out. Adding the practices to his already burgeoning schedule quickly starts to create problems with his friends, his teachers, his coach, his play director, and his ballet partner. Of course, it all comes together on the stage of the Sydney Opera House. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Surprizingly Good
7 October 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is quite a good film, with good solid acting and an interesting plot.

I was surprised that this film was granted a P.G certificate in the UK as it had quite a bit of swearing. The story is almost exactly the same as Billy Elliot but much better and australian and the boy plays Rugby instead of boxing. If you are looking for a rainy day movie this is perfect. I recommend it for everyone. The only disappointing thing about it was that it only lasted 95 minutes.

7/10
