It is a fictional story and of course it's meant to show extreme events, but many people in the ballet world say the way it shows dancers and their lifestyle is ridiculous - it seems to portray them all as neurotic and obsessed with their weight, which is a huge exaggeration. But at the end of the day it's a film and it's meant to entertain - it's not a documentary.

Were you, or have you ever been a ballerina ? I can tell you, you are talking through a hole in your thick head .

Yes, it does.  I was in that world, thankfully only for about 5 years, so I know what goes on there .  And it is not a fictional story, it is based on fact .
