In the scene were Lauren dances onstage at Ruby's for the first time, as she goes into her starting pose, she realizes that she is too fair to the left (viewer's left, her right) of the stage and adjusts herself so her silhouette (outline) is right in the middle of the sliding stage door (at the line where the doors meet). However, in the very next shot her silhouette is now to the right (viewer's right) of the middle/door split. See more »

A Glimpse Into Mary E Winstead Wholesome Qualities & Potential Stardom!
just bought the above DVD from my local video chain outlet (ie. Video Ezy) where i'm blessed to have it in my possession as my country (ie. Malaysia) has a fairly high amount of pirated DVD's products which causes licensed video shops to have limited movie titles...
well, to start off, apparently there were some deleted scenes in the movie where the producer / director decided to remove the story of Dana (ie.Tessa Thompson) getting pregnant and subsequent miscarriage....
due to this removal, i guess viewers could not fully appreciate the close relationship between Lauryn (ie.Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Dana which the scriptwriter wanted to relay but was unfortunately chopped in summary, some of the movie story reflected Mary's personal real life experiences such as being a ballerina when Lauryn was young, has taste for "off-the-beaten-track" music as composed by Russ (ie. Riley Smith) and I guess due to her holding steadfast to her personal principles, there were no revealing love or kissing scenes in the movie hurray to Mary! Initially, I've watched this movie over YouTube but now with my TV, I could better appreciate Mary's expressive eyes and innocent looks which I guess you all guys are all infatuated to, like myself ha..ha happy viewing
