What's Good About Bunheads? It Depicts Ballet As More Than Cutthroat Torture
"Recent portrayals" of ballet in the popular media - Black Swan, Breaking Pointe
- "have focused too much on the obstinacy, ambition, and perfectionism that fuels the enterprise of becoming a dancer. What makes it art, meanwhile, gets ignored." But Bunheads
"has found a way to bring ballet's relevance - the meaning of the steps, the dancer's feel for the movements - subtly but clearly to the fore."
