Dumb title-great adaption
17 February 2006 | by (Blackpool England) – See all my reviews

Missing from the cast list is its main star who is a legitimate ballerina called Lauren Grant. Without her the movie would be nothing. Here there's an attempt to set Tchaikovsky well into the 20th century when it starts off with a giant TV.Fiortunately Miss Grant has not been lumbered with minis she just wears one incredible dress after another,proper knee length ones with frilly things underneath.It makes this one of the great Petticoated Movies She comes across as the total Ideal Girl you would give your life for. In reality though Miss Grant is at least 30 and plays a child. So whoever does the cast list get her name in there.You can find her on the Web.
