As young dancers, they were best friends and fierce rivals. Deedee (Shirley MacLaine) left the stage for marriage and motherhood, while Emma (Anne Bancroft) would become an international ballet icon. But when Deedees teenage daughter (Leslie Browne in her film debut) is invited to join Emmas dance company and begins an affair with a young Russian star (Mikhail Baryshnikov in his film debut), the two women are forced to confront the choices theyve made, the resentments theyve hidden, and the emotional truths they must face at THE TURNING POINT.
Tom Skerritt, Anthony Zerbe and the artists of The American Ballet Theatre co-star in this Oscar®-nominated classic written by Arthur Laurents (THE WAY WE WERE, WEST SIDE STORY) and directed by Herbert Ross (STEEL MAGNOLIAS, FOOTLOOSE) that became one of the most acclaimed dramas of the decade and remains among the most stunning dance films of all time.

|WHY is this movie so expensive now?!||
it's been discontinued by the manufacturer... the price will go down if they put out a new version or start making it with a two movie version (like combining it with another movie of one of the stars).... I'm hoping it will be available as such!!

I just watched this film again the other night. I was impressed with how silly and dated the mentality was that drove the plot.
