Storyline

In the 70's, Alex Markov is raised by her mother Clarice Markov to be a successful ballerina, and in their home there are no mysteries or taboo related to sex, since her father, Dr. Dan Markov, openly discusses this subject with his family. When Alex reaches sixteen years old, her parents split while her boyfriend presses her to have sex blurring her dreams and making her confused. With the support of her family and friends, Alex supersedes her problems. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Save Yourself The Time And Later Regret
11 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watched this tonight. An hour and a half I will never get back in life. This film is slow, has a weak plot, and terrible acting. The film is headed by the far too mature looking lead actress Angela Gots ,a teenager with ballerina ambitions whom I found personally unattractive and confusing. Unfortunately for the viewer Angela Gots is a terrible actress and her supporting cast does not fair much better to save this film and lift her up. I personally watched for Alison Lohman who simply did not have enough screen time. Over all I found this film messy, unbelievable, and melodramatic. I could not find interest in this film or its cast but maybe you will have better luck.
