A vibrant, inspirational animated fable about an orphan girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina.
Ever since she was a child, 11-year-old 19th century French orphan Felicie (Elle Fanning) has wanted to dance. Her friend Victor (Dane DeHaan) promises to help her achieve her dream by taking her to Paris, where he plans to become a great inventor. Making a great escape from their Brittany orphanage, the young duo embark on an eventful journey across country. In the capital, Felicie is taken in by supportive former dancer Odette (Carly Rae Jepsen), who finds her work as a house maid. But in order to enter the Opera Ballet School and win the role of a lifetime, she will need every ounce of determination - and not a little low cunning!
An uplifting tale of ambition, hard work and underdog tenacity, this delightful, elegant family animation reminds us of the importance of never giving up on your dreams.
