Story

The movie is composed of stories gathered from the actual dancers, choreographers, and office staff of the Joffrey Ballet. Most of the roles are played by real-life company members. While there are small subplots involving a love story between Neve's character 'Rye' and James Franco's character, most of the movie focuses on the company as a whole, without any real star or linear plot. The many real-life stories woven together show the dedication and hard work that dancers must put in to their art, even though they are seldom rewarded with fame, fortune, or even a statue, painting, or album on which to look back. Franco as Tristan in Tristan and Isolde, 2006 James Edward Franco (born April 19, 1978) is a Golden Globe-winning American actor, director, screenwriter, and producer. ...


It has been reported that The Company was a capricious idea of Campbell's for a long time – she began her career as a ballet dancer, having been a student at Canada's National School of Ballet. Robert Altman was reportedly reluctant to take on the directing of the movie initially, but later relented.
