(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.
