      Jennifer A Love Emma here… She's amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved this movie soooo much!!!!! Emma Watson was amazing. It's a definite must watch!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Find it adorable, magical and cute. Family friendly, good acting, good story telling. An amazing cast. But overall they show much familiar love, values, and things that I find very enjoyable. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review william k Pleasant and not too saccharine period piece is nicely made with an excellent cast; an above-average TV production. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Ballet Shoes (2007), a British film made for television, is a perfectly cast and wholly charming rendition of Noel Streatfield's 1936 novel. The sisters' various quirks, strengths and flaws are captured wonderfully by the three actresses who portray them, as they learn the values of family and sacrifice. Both the positive and negative impact of success on each of the girls is handled deftly and neatly woven into the story - which flows seamlessly. Ballet Shoes' predictability can't be ignored however and certain key details are largely edited, which may upset fans of the original story. Well-shot and accompanied by a neat, non-intrusive score, the film effectively captures both the girls' innocent spirit and the spirit of the 1930s. While it doesn't include all key details from the book, Ballet Shoes manages to pack a fair amount into its short run-time. It's a very easy watch. Ballet Shoes (2007) flows with an effervescent charm and is more than worth a watch. It's enjoyable from start to finish. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Cute, sweet, family movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Joanne Kaufman Wall Street Journal [A] pleasant if uninspired adaptation of Noel Streatfeild's children's classic. Aug 29, 2008 Full Review Nancy Davis Kho Common Sense Media Sisters learn value of love, work, and sacrifice. Rated: 4/5 Sep 23, 2010 Full Review Louise Keller Urban Cinefile There are plenty of pleasures in this involving and uplifting tale which the young protagonists aspire to be actors, aviators and ballerinas Dec 12, 2008 Full Review Betty Jo Tucker ReelTalk Movie Reviews While watching 'Ballet Shoes,' I felt like a time machine had transported me to London in the 1930s, then set me in the midst of this wonderful humanistic story. Aug 29, 2008 Full Review Brian Orndorf BrianOrndorf.com It's a caloric helping of melodrama, but it's rendered effective by the exceptional performances and observant direction by the vastly talented Sandra Goldbacher. Rated: B+ Aug 28, 2008 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Flick Filosopher [A] lovely, honest film about the hopes and dreams of... young women... Jul 29, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
