When I heard that this movie was being made, I was very excited, because I had never seen a good burlesque movie before. And the fact that this movie had such great reviews and was even nominated for a Best Picture nomination was just too much to pass up. The movie itself was not what I was expecting, it wasn't like the movie I expected. However, I found the movie to be very entertaining, and the soundtrack to be very good. The storyline itself was a little slow to me, but the story overall was great. The movie is about a woman, who had worked in burlesque for many years and was very passionate about her profession. She was finally able to make it as a full time burlesque performer. But, one day, she gets into an accident, and the police had no idea why she was in the accident. She is left with a terrible injury, but she gets out of the hospital, and goes to the burlesque club. However, she gets rejected by the manager, and the club doesn't want to help her out. So, she decides to find a new burlesque show to perform. This is when she meets Michael. He tells her about the club, and she decides to go there. So, she starts performing with him, and they have a great show. This is where she starts making friends with the other burlesque performers, and is soon put in the spotlight. But, when she goes to the club to get her show, she has a terrible accident. The police don't believe her, and the manager doesn't want her back. However, she manages to get back on stage, and everyone loves her, but some people don't like her, and she is no longer a burlesque performer. This is when she starts to fall in love with a man, and realizes she has to take care of her own business. The movie is definitely not a typical Hollywood burlesque movie. The movie is more of a real burlesque movie, and I found it interesting that the movie wasn't set in a big city like Los Angeles. The movie was set in the burlesque club, and the burlesque show was set in a little hotel. The movie is very entertaining, and I would recommend this movie to anyone.
