Storyline

Deborah Matthews' divorce from her husband Jason Matthews has just been finalized. She filed for divorce because she believed he was cheating on her. Jason has since moved away to work on an often communication inaccessible research ship. That fact and the divorce itself does not sit well with their sixteen year old daughter, aspiring ballerina Erika Matthews, who blames her mother for her parent's martial problems due to her being a workaholic and for her not forgiving Jason for the indiscretion, which he vehemently denies. To make matters worse, Erika's long time ballet coach, Leonard Capas, has just quit before her important audition into the Ballet America summer program. Mr. Capas' resignation was solely by a cryptic letter with no in-person good-bye to staff or the students. Luckily, the ballet school is able to fill immediately Mr. Capas' job by a young man named Reed Halton, who believes he can help Erika prepare for her audition. Reed has been a widower now for eighteen ... Written by Huggo

Yikes.
18 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film had promise with its story. I sadly have to agree with the other comments. The result of the film was terrible. The main reason being the acting of the actress who played Erika. She forced every line and was very poor. I too was wondering why she got the role.The other problem would have to be the MANY montages we have of Erika dancing. Half the film is Reed thinking of her dance and it gets boring (Although, a creep like Reed may ALWAYS think of the obsession.)The positive thing would be the actress who played the mother as well as the actor who played Reed were good. But overall, the films two problems out shined the positive.
