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

One star too many
30 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

What is the deal with Canadian actors/actresses and Lifetime movies? Is there a university there which presents a major in "Theater, specifically directed towards 'Lifetime' movies?" Or does our government have some sort of deal with " Lifetime" to employ a majority of Canadian actors to move some of our dollars into Canada?

I realize a lot of talent has come to this country from Canada, but given Canada's population versus ours, it seems, based upon any sort of statistical probability, we ought to encounter about 4 or 5% as many Canadian thespians as one sees on "Lifetime."

I've no objection, one way or the other, but noted that three of the top-listed in this film {daughter (and purported dancer), teacher, and young boyfriend, Jesse}. And this movie, characters and performances, were so awful, it was more interesting contemplating this than watching it.

This young woman - only perhaps - has sufficient talent to be in a high school production, and most schools of any size would have someone more talented than she. The actor portraying the fixated teacher is probably talented, but that was hard to detect here.

Every character was insipid - and I, for one, could not have cared an iota less about the mother/her divorce/her job, the talentless daughter, or the teacher/where he came from/what he thought -- or anything about any of them.

The writers, director and producer ought to be prosecuted for fraud, for impersonating persons in the entertainment field.
