Animated Musical: In 19th century France, an 11-year-old orphan girl runs away from her orphanage to Paris, hoping to realize her dream of becoming a famous ballerina.
In 19th century France, Felicie (voice of ELLE FANNING) is an 11-year-old girl who lives a humdrum existence in a rural orphanage. With adoption unlikely, she dreams of running off to Paris with her best friend and fellow orphan, Victor (voice of NAT WOLFF), and becoming a famous ballerina. Victor is clearly smitten with her and concocts a plan of escape, evading the stern headmaster, Luteau (voice of MEL BROOKS), to jump a train to the City of Lights.

Once in Paris, Felicie meets a woman named Odette (voice of CARLY RAE JEPSEN), a former dancer who suffered a bad leg injury and is now a cleaning lady at both the Grand Opera House and the home of the cruel Regine (KATE McKINNON). Regine has raised an equally mean and entitled daughter named Camille (voice of MADDIE ZIEGLER), who is on the verge of being accepted to a prestigious ballet training program at the Grand Opera House. Felicie intercepts the girl's acceptance letter and steals her spot in the class.

Separately, Victor has found work as an apprentice to Gustave Eiffel (who is not seen in the film), the man who designed the Eiffel Tower and also contributed to the building of the Statue of Liberty. Victor dreams of being an inventor to impress Felicie, but she is smitten with a handsome boy dancer named Rudolph (voice of TAMIR KAPELIAN). When Felicie's ruse is discovered, though, her whole future is thrown into jeopardy.

Young children and some teens, especially those who love to watch the various TV dance shows, will have interest due to the subject matter and the pop stars who provide voices and/or songs.
For some impolite humor and action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
