Trama e commenti: - - - - - «Ballerina ritrova ex collega e amica, diventata una tranquilla casalinga: ognuna delle due rimpiange quello che non ha. Ammirevole duetto (e duello) tra due primedonne, sullo sfondo dell'American Ballet. Il film ebbe 11 candidature all'Oscar senza vincerne nemmeno uno. Un record».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: - - - - - - IMDb«...During the Romeo and Juliet "pas de deux" at the ballet studio you can see the cameraman knelling on the mirror...» - «The Turning Point is one of the best films of its era. It's that rare example of synergy in which every key element is excellent and the ensemble is an absolute triumph. Anne Bancroft and Shirley MacLaine, starring as longtime friends with unresolved problems, are magnificent. The intricate plotting introduces Bancroft as a ballet star just reaching that uneasy age where a lot of Eve Harringtons (male and female) are beginning to move in. MacLaine, her best friend, long ago abandoned a similar career to marry Tom Skerritt and now their teenage daughter (Leslie Browne) shows real promise as a dancer. This is the incident which triggers an explosion of new and old conflicts. Pic ranks as one of MacLaine's career highlights, ditto for Bancroft. They have a climactic showdown scene which filmgoers will remember for decades».
