The animation earns brownie points for its digital recreation of 1880s Paree. The rest, alas, is pretty pointe-less.

This serviceable French-Canadian digimation cleaves to the post-Cowell definition of the word "journey": its heroine is a redheaded dreamer (voiced by Elle Fanning) who flees her orphanage to blag a spot at the fin de siècle Paris Opera.

It is a holiday film for everybody -- girls, boys and adults, no matter how jaded their taste for "family fare".

Ballerina has its flaws, and it certainly won't get the buzz of Moana. But it is a sweet film with its heart in the right place...

Ballet is all about making the body achieve amazing feats seemingly effortlessly, and the animation replicates that with often sublime effect.
