It is no secret that Netflix’s streaming movies selection is less than stellar. Last night, having made my way through all of the “Top Picks for Meagan”, “Dark Biographical Documentaries”, “Quirky Movies”, and “Reality TV” custom lists pre-selected based on my previous choices, I begrudgingly clicked on the new “Teen Movies” category that popped up.
Oh. My. God. Gold mine.
I had completely forgotten about Center Stage. Edgy hip hop numbers to Mandy Moore singles. Bad-boy ballarinos that battle for the girl’s heart in twirl-offs. RED POINTER SHOES.
This movie, based off a book (La Pregunta de Sus Ojos), and directed by Juan Jose Campanella, won the Oscar for best foreign film in 2010. It is awesome. It’s a drama, mystery, thriller, love story…really fantastic. Go rent it.
