3 Reasons to See LEAP! Movie Blu-ray

In the film LEAP!, 11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream – to go to Paris and become a dancer. But with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough.



Note: I was invited as media to the movie screening. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

After attending an advance screening, I encourage families to go out and see LEAP!. At first glance a movie about a girl ballerina might not seem interesting. But there's much more to Félicie's story and the film then that.

So here are my 3 reasons you should go see LEAP!

Félicie is a girl of action


One of the fun things about Félicie is that she's always in movement. From dancing while doing the dishes to dashing off to pursue her dreams in Paris, Félicie is fun to watch. And when she gets to Paris and into the dance school, Félicie does the hard work to make her dreams come through. She's a great young female role model for girls who don't believe in sitting down and waiting for things to happen.


Different View of Paris




In the dual side story we follow Félicie's best friend Victor (Nat Wolff), who has a dream of his own - to become a famous inventor. As we follow Victor and Félicie around Paris we see both amazing finished and unfinished areas of the city. It's a visual delight. We even get a peek at the building of iconic monuments the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.


The Dance-Off Scene



LEAP! is full dance and I admit, it's fun to see how they learn the different dance movements. But the real thrill is to see how they put the dancing in action. Each dance is enjoyable but the final dance off between Félicie and her rivel Camille was something on a whole other dance level. I don't want to give away anything but I promise that dance off is one of the highlights in the movie.

While I only listed 3 reasons, there's lots more why watching how Félicie makes her dreams come through will be enjoyable for families everywhere. Take a chance and watch LEAP!.

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.

Featuring all-star voice talent led by Elle Fanning (Maleficent), alongside Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and Maddie Ziegler (The Book of Henry), with Mel Brooks (Spaceballs), featuring Carly Rae Jepsen (singer-songwriter of the hit song “Call Me Maybe”) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”).
