The Family Animated Movie Leap!

Movie Synopsis: Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.

My Thoughts: My almost 9 year old daughter has been taking dance lessons for the past 2 years and I knew she would enjoy this movie. We sat down together as a family last weekend to watch it and she was glued to the TV screen from start to finish. Even as an adult, I found the movie funny and entertaining.

One of the things I really enjoyed about the movie is that it’s different than other animated flicks out in the retail marketplace. I don’t know about all of you, but I’m tired of all of the Princess & Superhero flicks! This animated movie has an entertaining story line with an important life lesson embedded within it. I love how it teaches children to always reach for their dreams and that no matter what, if they work hard, they can achieve them. I also think it’s important for children to have adult mentors and adult cheerleaders to help steer them in the right direction and to cheer them on. Just like what you see in the movie.
