7.4 out of 10

Drama In the early 1980s, the young Carlos Acosta - who is nicknamed Yuli - explores his love of dance by performing with kids in his neighbourhood. This passion for gyrating to Michael Jackson grates on Carlos' burly father, a truck driver called Pedro, who decides to test his son's resolve. He forces the lad to audition for the National Ballet School. Carlos is initially reluctant to take part. One of the school's tutors, Chery, brings Carlos out of his shell and nurtures his raw, undeniable talent.
