Polina
Polina (Danser sa vie)

(NR) 1 Hr. 56 Min. In French with English subtitles (Art House & International, Drama)

In this thrilling coming-of-age story, a rigorously trained and talented young dancer is determined to find her voice in a cutthroat world.  Polina (played by Anastasia Shevtsova, a professional dancer who has performed with Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre) is a promising classical ballet dancer about to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance, a revelation that throws everything into question on a profound level. Diverting from her plan, she leaves all her exacting preparation behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (played by French Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche who has danced with London-based dancer/choreographer Akram Khan). But once there she is quickly forced to grapple with the realization that determination and hard work don't always lead to success.
