Rated NR · 90 minutes · 2012

It’s not exactly a revelation, but the documentary First Position lets us in on such hush-hush information as, “Ballet takes a lot of work,” and, “Ballet is hard on your body.” Oh, and, “Not everyone makes it in ballet.” First Position is no more accomplished than a 60 Minutes piece on aspiring dancers might be; rudimentary is the name of the game. There are interviews, and a couple of the ballerinas have incredible stories to tell, but that’s not an achievement the movie can really claim. The dancing is seen as almost secondary to the competition, and so the beauty of the art form is often difficult to find.
