2002: Jake Mitchell is the defending World West Coast Swing Champion. He's got everything going for him: looks, personality, and style. He's at the top of his game when he and his partner Corinne are crowned the unexpected winners at the World Swing Dance Championships. As the crowd cheers and the celebration begins, Jake appears uneasy. Did he really deserve to win? The music blasts and the bass is thumping, and Jake hears none of it. He feels it. Jake is completely deaf, due to an ear infection when he was a teenager. He learned how to dance by feeling the vibrations of the music. Now he feels something else: that perhaps the judges gave him the win out of sympathy. Present Day: Jessica Donovan's life is boring. When she was younger, she was a dancer who had dreams of Broadway. Now she's an English teacher for disinterested, upper class middle school kids, and she's dying to let loose. Her fiancee Kent is a work-a-holic who cares more about making money than making Jessica happy. ...Written by
I'm anticipating the release of this film so friends can enjoy it as much as I did.
I had the pleasure of viewing it at the Phoenix Film Festival and the house was packed. To our surprise Mr Zane and Mr Malloy along with other cast members flew in for the screening. We've all seen these types of films before, but they never cease to keep us in our seats. This film focusing on West Coast Swing dancing competition and a dancer with a hearing disability, Wow! The film is inspirational to say the least and showcased many brilliant dancers.
It was clearly evident that the film was a big hit with the ovation given at the conclusion of the film.
I would also like to make note of the cast staying around for close to an hour after the film answering various questions on this film, independent films in general, and how to get into the business.
If you're looking for a feel good movie with great music, acting, and dancing, don't miss it.
