Fabulous film
5 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film was absolutely fabulous. I am dancer and watching it made me want to dance, and it doesn't just apply to dancers this film i know people that have watched that are not very keen on dancing but they really liked this film. The dancers in it are fabulous and really make the film whole. This storyline is amazing, and very enjoyable. Friendships are put the test love is hanging on a small string. I enjoyed this film more than anything the beauty in the relationships. You see that everyone should live their life to the maximum. Which these girls did. Friendship, devotion, courage, acceptance these are the main messages of the film and they are strong messages that everyone should think about once. This shows these girls are grateful for everything they have and that is the way that everyone should be.
