  • The portrait of the girls, their hard-up but loving parents (two are single mums, men being conspicuous by their absence) and the school staff egging them on is in turns saddening and lovely, the drama of their collective effort intensely moving.

  • Step is a story about relationships. And how even the most challenging family ties shape us into the people we are destined to become.

  • Director Amanda Lipitz takes viewers home with the students and creates palpable drama around their quests to attend college following their senior year.

    August 11, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The film is perhaps not entirely candid about all the bad stuff backstage, and there are complex personal issues that are not entirely absorbed. But a very likable film.

    August 11, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Inspiring and uplifting.

    August 11, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Step is a superlative entrant into the particular modern genre of film-making known as: "Tear-jerking and life-affirming documentary..."
