Ballroom Dancing in the Movies (again!)

There is yet another chance to catch ballroom dancing on the big screen. If you're in the mood for a comedy musical, try Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School. The film stars the likes of Robert Carlyle, Marisa Tomei, and Sean Astin.

You can access the trailer here. Be aware that it may take a few minutes to load.

Robert Carlyle is Frank Keane, a baker by trade but now a man consumed by his wife's death. When fate intervenes, he pulls over to help a stranger in a car wreck, a man near death (John Goodman) who urgently discloses a planned reunion, a meeting with a lost childhood love at a school for ballroom dance. So simply one man's dream becomes another man's destiny.
Starring Robert Carlyle, Marisa Tomei, John Goodman, Mary Steenburgen, Sean Astin, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Devito.

If this keeps up, and I hope it does, I'll soon have to add a page just for movie reviews!
