Archive for the ‘Larisa Oleynik’ Category

One of the main reasons that I watch this movie…is that I recognise the cast…the two leads…whom we haven’t seen act that much. There’s Larisa Oleynik…she was in the Secret World of Alec Mac…remember her? After 10 Things I hate About You, we haven’t really seen much of her right? Then there’s Shiri Appleby…she was Liz in Roswell…we’ve seen her in some stuff…but all in minor roles.

So anyway….this one is about two childhood best friends who both love dancing…except the other lives and breathes dancing…totally devoted to it and dreams of attending Julliard. But when she is diagnosed with cancer…she fears all her dreams will be dashed.

I didn’t like it…it was boring…Its just like what Will Lightman of About a Boy said…crap made for t.v. movie about a kid with leukemia…Although I wouldn’t exactly say its crap…since it wan’t horribly bad with horribly bad acting…it was just ordinary…the same storyline thrown at us soo many times before…it wasn’t original and interesting…I mean the story was suppose to be this major tear jerker that just pulls your heart strings…sure it was sad and everything…but it just wasn’t that type of emotional drama that just makes you want to curl up and cry. And the acting well…it was only so so. I guess…that the only thing that could have set it apart from the others was the dance back story…but then…I didn’t really like dance sequences…it wasn’t really nice…and neither did I like the whole dream sequence thing…it was weird…I guess its just too artsy for me.
