The big fault of most low budget, independent films is not their lack of funds -- it's their lack of a well worked out script that has something to say. Well, "The Dance" is way above the average in the writing department. Based on the stageplay by Carol Lynn Pearson, it has been well worked out by director McKay Daines for the screen. The story explores three couples whose lives are enriched during one evening at a church dance social. The performances are first rate and the cinematography very striking. The film is romantic,thought provoking and very entertaining. This is certainly one of the best of the recent films made by LDS filmmakers. Certainly worth picking up on DVD!
