Washington Post
Forget that "reality" show about young dancers on the Lifetime channel. First Position, a debut documentary from Bess Kargman, is the real thing. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
First Position overcomes its predictable elements thanks to the inherent visual drama of watching children strain their bodies to the limit in obsessive pursuit of their goals. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Their devotion to their art is admirable, and the film gets under the skin, if never really in our blood. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
The documentary feels preprogrammed when it could have been a real-life Black Swan. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
These performers are so young, so serious, so full of dreams and so hard on themselves that it is difficult not to be moved by their striving. Full Review
