Deborah Matthews' divorce from her husband Jason Matthews has just been finalized. She filed for divorce because she believed he was cheating on her. Jason has since moved away to work on an often communication inaccessible research ship. That fact and the divorce itself does not sit well with their sixteen year old daughter, aspiring ballerina Erika Matthews, who blames her mother for her parent's martial problems due to her being a workaholic and for her not forgiving Jason for the indiscretion, which he vehemently denies. To make matters worse, Erika's long time ballet coach, Leonard Capas, has just quit before her important audition into the Ballet America summer program. Mr. Capas' resignation was solely by a cryptic letter with no in-person good-bye to staff or the students. Luckily, the ballet school is able to fill immediately Mr. Capas' job by a young man named Reed Halton, who believes he can help Erika prepare for her audition. Reed has been a widower now for eighteen ... Written by Huggo

Overall disappointing!
18 July 2006 | by ari73See all my reviews

To be brutally honest, this movie was extremely hard to sit through because the acting was just completely horrible. Elise Gatien, who played Erika Matthews (the teenage girl who was being stalked by her ballet teacher), was one of the characters that I kept asking myself, "How ON EARTH did she get this role?!?" I apologize for sounding so harsh but w/ all due respect, she can't act nor can she dance. As a big movie fan (be it TV or the silver screen), I have high expectations from Hollywood & most of the time, if I'm disappointed w/ a movie, it's usually because of the storyline & not because of the acting. So not the case w/ this movie. Of course, you can't blame everything on the actors because directors are just as responsible & the directing in this movie was very poor. I mean how many times do you need to see Erika's audition performance? This part of the movie was over kill for me & it didn't help that she wasn't a great ballet dancer to begin w/. Overall, a disappointing Lifetime movie!
