C Me in the NYT
Barnes proceeds to say that the film is "opening in about 200 theaters nationwide on April 3 and produced by Pennsylvania-based Uplifting Entertainment, is about a teenage girl who achieves her dream – joining the Pittsburgh Ballet – only to discover she has a rare blood disease. The girl and her father then embark on a spiritual adventure to bring revival to America."
The total cost of the film-- including marketing-- is noted to be half a million dollars, the same cost as Fireproof, which went on to make $33.5 million.
By the way, I'm pretty sure I can already spot the pun in C Me Dance's title, film unseen, and if I'm right, the filmmakers deserve either a special award or a scolding; I can't decide which.
But even if the film turns out to be as cheesy as its title sorta is, it's still worth noting that it has apparently had quite an effect on those who have seen it; the Leukemia Society, for example, is already endorsing it as a a meaningful and eye-opening movie.
