Birds of Paradise, a challenging new film about confidence, opportunity, and power will premiere on Amazon Prime on Friday 24 September.

Kate Sanders is an ambitious and gifted, if tomboyish, aspiring ballerina from Virginia who, because of her low-income status, is given a scholarship to attend a prestigious ballet school in Paris, France. Upon arriving at the cutthroat, internationally-renowned institution, her confidence and emotional fortitude are tested by a beautiful, mysterious fellow dancer, Marine Durand, who recently lost her brother (and dance partner) to suicide.

While confrontational at first, Kate and Marine’s relationship evolves into an emotionally-charged, competitive union beset by lies, sexual awakening and, ultimately, emotional breakthrough as they risk everything to win the school’s ultimate prize: a contract to join the Opéra National de Paris.

The film stars Diana Silvers, Kristine Froseth and Jacqueline Bisset and follows an aspiring ballerina from Virginia who, because of her low-income status, is given a scholarship to attend a prestigious ballet school in Paris, France.

Upon arriving at the cutthroat, internationally-renowned institution, her confidence and emotional fortitude are tested by a beautiful, mysterious fellow dancer. The film is based on the book “Bright Burning Stars by A.K. Small, and is written for the screen and directed by Sarah Adina Smith.

Birds of Paradise Premieres on Amazon Prime Video Friday 24 September at 6.00pm.
