Strictly Ballroom is an energetic, fun and hilarious movie. Baz Lurhman does an incredible job telling the story of a rebellious young dancer who just wants to dance his own steps in the face of conformity. When he finds an inexperienced yet determined dance partner it’s the beginning of an unexpected love story like no other. This movie isn’t like the usual rom-com, it has colour, vitality and passion. It’s a Moulin Rouge but with even more character, and the work that put Lurhman on the map for everyone.
My mother and I totally enjoyed this little gem. If you take it for what it is, a little bit of a spoof on ballroom, you will really enjoy this romantic comedy. The dancing was fun to watch!
What did you think? Who should watch it?
