The Weinstein Company is releasing a new animated film on August 25th. The new movie is called Leap! It’s about an 11-year-old orphan named Félicie (Elle Fanning). She has only one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. If you want to see an early screening of this wonderful movie, you are in luck. There’s a Portland screening on Saturday, August 19th at Regal Bridgeport at 11 am. Thanks to The Weinstein Company, I’m giving away 10 VIP passes for the screening. Each pass is good for two people.
11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend Victor (Nat Wolff), an imaginative but exhausting boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own – to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But — there’s a catch, Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Maddie Ziegler) and her wicked mother Régine (Kate McKinnon). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Carly Rae Jepsen) who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.
Thanks to The Weinstein Company, ten readers of my Portland blog will each win a VIP screening pass to see Leap! in Portland. Each movie pass is good for 2 people. To enter, leave a comment with your full name (you will use this name to check in at the theater). The screening is in Portland, Oregon so please confirm you are in the Portland area. The first 10 people to enter will each win a pass. Everyone else will be put on a waiting list in the event one of the winners do not claim their pass.
