M-Net Stars to screen film of famous Tchaikovsky ballet.

On April 20 at 1930, M-Net Stars will screen Nutcracker directed in 1993 by Emile Ardolino and starring MacCauley Culkin and Darcy Krisler.

A little girl finds herself in a magical world where toys walk and talk, and aren’t all friendly. Luckily, a prince comes to her rescue.

From the director of Dirty Dancing and Sister Act comes this beautifully filmed screen version of the famous Tchaikovsky ballet, Nutcracker. The story revolves around a little girl who, on Christmas Eve, finds herself in a wondrous, dreamlike world where toys are lifesize, lifelike - and very much alive. When Marie gets into trouble with the Mouse King, the Nutcracker Prince comes to her rescue. Her adventures eventually culminate at a grand ball in the spectacular Hall of the Sugarplum Fairy.
