Take the Lead directed by Liz Friedlander (2006), is an film about a professional dancer and instructor that gives lessons to underprivileged teens in their high school basement to teach them that they can accomplish anything, respect their peers, and have some confidence in what they’re doing in life. It’s a heart warming idea that a successful dancer would help the youth that most would write off. However, the main pull of the film is the dancing and not the overall story. The dancing was fun to watch and see where it went. There were surprises along the way. In the end, it’s a fun mindless dance film to warm the heart and offer some fun. It’s an easy watch that’s worth putting on, if you want background noise or a date night film or just something fun to put on.
Watched on HBO Max.
