Intimate portrait of a chorus line dancer, done well
Nick (Rich Negron) has been a noteworthy dancer in Broadway's chorus lines for quite a number of years. He also has a sweet, beautiful live-in girlfriend named Amy (Kristin Moreu). Amy, a former dancer whose career was cut short by injury, now works in physical therapy. It is her fervent wish to marry Nick. Nick, however, has a roving eye and has been participating in an extracurricular romance with Heidi, also a dancer. When Nick's current Broadway show folds suddenly, he has two hard choices staring him in the face. Is he too old to compete in the world of dance and should he marry Amy?
This is an excellent examination of career paths that last only a brief number of years. Negron's portrayal of a man obsessed with proving his stamina and vitality rings true. Nick indulges in spontaneous sexual encounters and refuses other job offers when he should analyze what is really important to him. All of the lovely actresses in the film are captivating, with Moreu giving a caring, vulnerable performance. The dance sequences are lively and fun. What a shame that this film does not have a higher profile. Despite some brief scenes of strong sexuality, it deserves the attention of those who admire films dealing with the lost specter of youth.
