Ballet Shoes, the movie

I've been periodically checking up on the progress of the BBC adaptation of Noel Streatfeild's Ballet Shoes, but I still managed to totally miss the boat: this made-for-TV movie aired on December 26th in the UK, and is now out on DVD. I'm not totally broken up about missing it, however—Streatfeild's 1936 classic is incredibly entertaining, but I'm not sure how well it will adapt to TV, and I'm even less enthusiastic about the casting of Emma "Hermione Granger" Watson as Pauline.

American fans of the novel can watch this adaptation by purchasing the DVD (if you happen to have a region-free DVD player) or watching it on YouTube (if you're willing to watch the whole 85-minute-long production in 10-minute increments).
