Details Limited Release: Jun 17, 2011; Length: 93 Minutes; Genre: Documentary; Distributor: Screen Media Films

The world of competitive Irish dancing gets the documentary treatment from director Sue Bourne, who uncovers the sweat and toil behind all the sparkly outfits and clickety-clack footwork. With a special eye for tweenage 
 phenoms, Bourne explores the field's surprisingly global talent pool: a Sri Lankan-born Dutch teenager, a group of Russian enthusiasts, a California family that moved to the U.K. for their gifted son. They're all fascinating 
 subjects — or would be if Jig didn't dance around their personal stories in favor of overheated waiting-for-the-scores suspense. B
