If you love burlesque, this movie is definitely a must-see. I liked seeing a bold, young woman from a conservative family stand up for her passion so beautifully. A highly enjoyable film!

Alluring and Free Within Herself
I really liked this movie. It wasn’t a cinematic masterpiece, but I did like that it wasn’t a romance. It showed the art of burlesque in a positive way. Fatima learned how to be free, confident, and alluring within herself. I didn’t like her college friends that much. They didn’t add anything to the story. Overall, it was great.
