The familiar tragic story of Vincent van Gogh is broadened by focusing as well on his brother Theodore, who helped support Vincent. The movie also provides a nice view of the locations which Vincent painted.
An inside look at the world of ballet. With the complete cooperation of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, Altman follows the stories of the dancers, whose professional and personal lives grow impossibly close, as they cope with the demands of a life in the ballet. Campbell plays a gifted but conflicted company member on the verge of becoming a principal dancer at a fictional Chicago troupe, with McDowell the company's co-founder and artistic director, considered one of America's most exciting choreographers. Franco plays Campbell's boyfriend and one of the few characters not involved in the world of dance. Written by

This gorgeous production by Neve Campbell is a brilliant presentation in almost documentary form (but completely directed and scripted) offers the audience a fantastic look at the world of dance without make-up, without pretense. The dance numbers and the behind the look scenes along with a day in the life of dancer comes across not as some dry, boring experience, but a absorbing, compelling rhythmic, musical, and oftentimes emotional witness to the world of dance. Unlike Chorus Line, this movie avoids the typical stereotypes - but offers a glimpse of actual moods, events that have occurred among various real dancers. The dancing is superb, the presentation on par with the best of them. This is a must see movie for anyone interested in an empathic look at the dedication and heartache of dance. Eight out of Ten Stars.
