this is a plug for the new zealand film Whale Rider.

it's nothing to do with dance!

BUT: i DO think it has relevance to young female ballet students - or any young females - as it's 'about' a young girl/woman discovering her own power. it's wonderfully uplifting (although also a liitle weepy).

the scenery is beautiful, the acting sincere- especially from the little girl. i recommend it.

just one warning: the opening scene, of a woman in childbirth, is the MOST harrowing in the whole film, and may not be suitable for children under about 13.
