The Turning Point (1977) Rated PG

When a young woman joins a ballet company, her mother, a former ballerina, confronts her own decision years ago to forgo work for family. Starring Anne Bancroft, Shirley MacLaine, and Tom Skerritt.

The film takes us behind the scenes of a ballerina’s life. The story is very much like a soap opera, and the storyline with the brother just disappears halfway through the movie. The film then switches gears and becomes more about Emilia and her mother. The story is brilliant and fun to watch. However, with the brother’s storyline totally disappearing without a trace and the film having so many different storylines fused together, it’s not Oscar-worthy. It is, however, worth a watch.
