Storyline

Deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia, where every man owns a gun and a moonshine still, abides living legend Jesco White, "the dancing outlaw". As a boy Jesco was in and out of reform school and the insane asylum. To keep him out of trouble, his daddy D-Ray taught him the art of mountain dancing, a frenzied version of tap dancing to wild country banjo music. After his father's death, crazy Jesco dons his father's tap shoes and takes his show on the road. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

Biopic of a LIVING Legend
8 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't do a biopic of a LIVING legend who already has two documentaries and tons of you tube videos featuring his antics and do this poor of a job of casting! Nick Cage's southern accent in Con Air sounds like General Robert E Lee himself compared to this BRIT trying to sound Southern! Are you kidding me??? After the first few lines of narration I looked up the cast and was shocked to see that ridiculousness! I watched twenty minutes of it and then I just couldn't stomach it anymore. Did Jesco actually allow you to butcher the telling of his life like this? I really cannot believe he would have done that. If you want to see a good film on Jesco White, rent The Dancing Outlaw and forget about this garbage!
