An amazing thing about a well made feature documentary (or any story) is that even if the subject is completely out of your wheel-house, you can still be completely enthralled by the film. Not that I'm opposed at all, but ballet is pretty far out of my normal entertainment place of interest. None-the-less, I thoroughly enjoyed First Position. Whether the story is about a spelling bee or a cake baking competition or ballet, I find doc's have the ability to mesmerize and keep you on the edge of your seat (and other such complementary cliches) more than any form of sporting event. So, if you are a fan of the NHL and have an empty places in your soul missing due to a lack of hockey watching, maybe you could go for a dose of ballet.
First Position screens for three nights at the Mayfair - Friday October 19th at 7pm, Sunday 21st at 6:30pm and Monday 22nd at 7pm.
