Ballet Shoes

This one, I watched on Netflix Instant play. I had heard lots of good reviews on it, and most reviewers assured me of its happy ending and heart warming tale.They lied. Ballet Shoes is the story of three orphan girls being raised by a women in a large house that belonged to an old man […]
