Movie Info

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever feature documentary celebrating the world famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The all male, comic ballet company was founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots and and has a diverse cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, intimate character-driven stories, and amazing dance performances shot in North America, Europe and Japan. Rebels on Pointe is a creative blend of gender, diversity, passion and purpose. A story which ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing -- but an act of rebellion in a tutu.

  • This thoughtfully crafted, seamlessly edited film reveals the grit behind the glitter, and it makes the Trocks' humor as touching as it is pointed.

  • It's in the attention to these dancers that Rebels on Pointe does some of its most moving work, exploring how people hold a space for one another, and how ballet-if we allow it, or make it-can hold a space for us.

  • A delightful, embracing cultural experience, one that the film's director, Bobbi Jo Hart, warmly captures in all its offbeat glory ...

  • Friendly but matter-of-fact doc will play best with the troupe's existing fans.

  • Serious balletomanes will find much to appreciate here; people who delight in seeing the form lampooned will find more.

  • The cinematography isn't the greatest, and the structure is hit or miss, but so what? In a movie this good natured, the heart is everything.
