Storyline Heading
An orphan girl dreams of becoming a ballerina and flees her rural Brittany for Paris, where she passes for someone else and accedes to the position of pupil at the Grand Opera house.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Adventure Comedy - This inspirational period animated comedy/adventure is aimed at kids, most specifically young girls, and even more specifically, those interested in ballet. The PG rating is only due to very brief alcohol and brief crude humor that is typical of modern animated comedies, so most parents of young kids will find this to be safe viewing for the whole family. Elle Fanning voices the main character.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average The emotional and visual power of dance is so great that even a mediocre film can stoke our affection merely by showing it. The mediocre film in question is "Leap!,”... The best thing about "Leap” is its portrayal of the dance world, then and now, as both exhilarating and cruel: practically an altar that fanatical young people sacrifice their bodies upon.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Leap! is best when tapping into the heart rather than the mind, thrilling with an ultimate ballet faceoff that makes Dancing With the Stars look like amateur hour while also watching Félicie's big dreams take flight.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average Sadly, the film's careful attention to detail in the animation is continuously undermined by a formulaic plot and anxious pandering to contemporary sensibilities. A hodgepodge of gratingly manic comedy and Rocky-esque training montages...
