(Quad Productions, Main Journey, Carmel Films | The Weinstein Company) Directors: Éric Summer, Éric Warin Release Date: August 25. 2017 Rotten Tomatoes Score: 35% Synopsis: With dreams of becoming a ballerina, a young orphan named Félicie, along with a friend, escapes the orphanage and journeys to Paris to study. Pretending to be the scion of a moneyed family gets her into the academy, but her struggle for success is fraught with social and other obstacles. Box Office to Date: $104.3 million worldwide The Word: “Leap! follows a predictable underdog-story pattern, with Félicie scoring small triumphs, suffering major setbacks, undergoing a crisis of character, and eventually well, you know the rest. The anachronistic pop songs actually work quite nicely with the scenes of classical dancing, and will most likely help hold the attention of the little ones. — Richard Roper, Chicago Sun-Times. Nomination Chances: The European success of Leap! has not translated to the U.S., making it unlikely to jump ahead of others. Slim chances are likely now none, given the Weinstein Co. label.
