Quotes

Isabel: [Mia, in panic, has tried to back out of the competition] Mia, I've seen the way my son looks at you. He loves you! When I told you that love meant letting go, I was wrong. I hope that you go back out there and dance. And more than that, I hope you win.
Mia: [Mia laughs, and is startled when Isabel takes a can of spray and sprays Mia on the cheek] What's that?
Isabel: For good luck!
[She kisses Mia on the forehead]

Heartwarming!

A lovely story, well done! It's nice to see the good guys win for a change... There aren't enough stories of the underdog - working hard to pull thru. Direct this to those facing adversity, when they think the hill is too tall to climb... We'd see it again! The message - You don't need to spend a fortune to make a film worth seeing! Keep up the good work! A lovely story, well done! It's nice to see the good guys win for a change... There aren't enough stories of the underdog - working hard to pull thru.
