well worth renting! a skillfully handled dance movie!
4 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently received this from my Netflix queue with low expectations, but I was really surprised to see how well it was handled. As far as dance numbers go, it clearly delivers and holds its own among any big budget dance flick. The inexperienced cast really blew me away as they were able to pull off such real dramatic content. It's not a subtle drama, but it's handled very realistically for the issues it explores. I know you all think we don't want another dance movie (I know I did), especially not a dance movie no one has ever heard of. But trust me you should rent this one, sometimes you have to search for the good titles that are overlooked and B-Girl is one of them!
