  • Step is the story of young girls who are beating the odds. After seeing it, I hope audiences remember these girls never should have had to face such odds in the first place.

  • Rest assured audience members will be thinking about Step long after it's over.

    September 16, 2017 | Full Review…
  • There's a slickness to this storytelling that makes everything feel slightly fraudulent, even if it isn't. And yet I kind of loved it.

    August 13, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • No movie has lifted up my soul this year as much as this one has. No movie has had me crying tears of pure joy in quite the volume this one has.

    August 11, 2017 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 11, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Step is a story about relationships. And how even the most challenging family ties shape us into the people we are destined to become.
