Touching tale of family and relationships
12 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California. I thought it was an excellent, touching story. The casting was done in an interesting way. Without giving anything away (in other words, no "spoiler alert" needed) I can tell you that the film addresses current social issues, but ultimately is about relationships and the importance of family in our lives. Central to the story is the relationship, both as adults and - in flashbacks - to their childhood, between David, a shy fellow, and his delightfully quirky sister. Through her, he finds love in different ways. David's Dance takes place in upstate New York, but there are a few scenes which take place in Brazil. As an American film, the language of the film is English. There are some scenes which are partially in Portuguese. No subtitles are provided, and that might be something to add if the movie seeks wider distribution. See this film if you have a chance!
