Flesh and Bone Info:

In "Flesh and Bone," Claire, played by former American Ballet Theatre principal Sarah Hay (Black Swan), joins a prestigious ballet company in New York.  She's beautiful, soulful, talented and an emotionally wounded young woman who somehow still possesses an innate innocence and fragility while at the same time harboring self-destructive tendencies and a vaulting ambition.  Claire is a transcendent ballerina, capable of reaching the sublime but her inner torment and aspirations drive her in unforeseeable ways.  Along the way, she encounters drugs, sex, starvation, desire, betrayal, pain, punishment, fear, rebellion, insecurity and ambition.
