Corrected entry: In middle of the film when Sara decides to go back to ballet, she unwraps her pointe shoes and slips them on. As she puts them on you should see the elastic strap that goes across the top of her foot as she puts the shoes on, but it's not there until she starts wrapping the ribbons around her ankle - then the elastic suddenly appears.
Corrected entry: As a former dancer and follower of the dance scene, I can say Sara would not have been accepted based on that audition: she was auditioning as a ballet dancer (albeit with hip-hop mixed in) but didn't even go en pointe. She did a few advanced technical moves (a pirouette, a grand jete, etc) but not nearly enough to show mastery of the field she chose to audition in.
Corrected entry: In the movie Derrick is talking to Sarah after they watch the show and she is crying. He says "Do you want to go to Juliard" She had never mentioned to him that she wanted to go to Juliard or anything like that.
Corrected entry: In the scene near the end of the movie where Derek and his sister are at the playground with her son, Derek's sister tells him what she said to Sarah. Derek gets mad and then leaves to go tell his friend that he is not going with him. You can see that when Derek is at the park it is mid day and the sun is out. But by the time he gets to Malikye the sky is pitch black.
Corrected entry: In the end of the movie when Sarah is auditioning again for Juilliard, there is a close up of her putting on her toe shoes. They are obviously brand new, they are nice and clean and shiny. A dancer would not be going to an audition with brand new shoes that have not been broken in. They would be using a pair of shoes that they have worn a while and adjusted to.
Corrected entry: When Sarah is auditioning for Juilliard, the folding chair that she puts in the middle of the stage changes direction that it is facing.
Corrected entry: When her father shows her the room he has done for her he tells her not to touch the walls because they are still wet, but there are pictures hanging on the wall.
