Review: Marie and her sisters are dancers for the Opera Paris in the late 1800s. To earn extra money for her impoverished family Marie agrees to model for Edgar Degas. However, her mother's alcoholism and her sister's careless selfishness forces Marie to do things that hinder her dreams and ambitions. But she is the model for one of Degas' most famous works of art to emerge from the Impressionist era.
