A Pleasant Surprise
I don’t know about you, but I am sick to death of
all those over-done “teeny-bopper” movies that are
invading the cinema these days. When I went to see
the latest installment of the ‘Julia Stiles movie
collection’ I wasn’t holding my breath. I went to
see it for the dancing.
I was planning on ignoring what I was certain would
be a non-existant or cliched plot. Instead, what
I found was a refreshingly honest and real portayal
of the obstacles of life for a white teenage girl
in the black Chicago ghetto.
Whether it be dealing with a bi-racial relationship
and the prejudices that go along with it, or the
conquering of fears, this movie does well to speak
clearly on tough issues. While you may be reminded
of “Dangerous Minds, Dirty Dancing, or Flashdance”,
at times, this movie is unique and extremely well
Cinemagraphically, it is wonderful to watch, and
the music will keep you jiving ‘til morning.
If you are searching for a love story to watch this
Valentines Day, “Save the Last Dance” is a guaranteed
success. It is witty, funny, suspenseful, surprising,
romantic, and inspiring.
