  • George's ace in the hole is his subject herself. Copeland is captivating, oozing talent and charisma in equal parts.

  • A Ballerina's Tale is far from an exhaustive or even complete documentary, but George... captures the behind-the-scenes grit required of any great artist while also making it clear why this artist is more important than most.

    February 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • As an examination of how idealized conceptions of the ballerina have fed racial homogeneity in the industry, A Ballerina's Tale sticks with stuff we already know.

    January 15, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Stay for the end credits, which include a tribute to the (sadly few) black ballerinas who came before Copeland; you suspect, watching footage of the little girls who eagerly wait after performances, that many more will follow in her graceful footsteps.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie follows Copeland on stage and off during an unprecedented chapter in ballet history.

    October 29, 2015 | Rating: 7.1/10 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately fails to deliver the sort of inspirational uplift that should have been a given.
