Storyline

As a child, Jamie Lesser watched 'Strictly Ballroom' ninety-seven times a day and dreamed of becoming a salsa dancer. But in 'real life', his social awkwardness, failed love life and severe near-sightedness got in his way. After insurmountable disappointments, he turns to his estranged sister, Lianne, a streetwise, self-proclaimed hip hop dancing dynamo, inspires him to follow his dream, reclaim his self-esteem and become what he was truly meant to be.

A unique, refreshing movie you can watch more than once
26 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I really enjoyed this movie. It is earthy, authentic, refreshingly quirky, and has a lot of heart. It has a sincere message of hope and there are a lot of moving moments. Jamie (portrayed by David Rhein) is one of the most likable characters we have seen in a long time. His gentle, quiet, sweet nature makes him instantly relatable. The director, Marlene Rhein, is also a very gifted actress as well as director. She plays the part of Jamie's supportive sister who is fighting with her own troubles with passionate fortitude. We look forward to seeing it again and will be on the look out for more Marlene Rhein movies.
