Steve: You got secrets; so, the way I see it, we have us a... blackmail Mexican standoff. You try to ruin my life, I WILL ruin yours. I like that. It's a balance of power. Takes us back to the way we were before. We can just go on ignoring each other.
Tom: Yeah, but it's not balanced. I'll tell everyone that you're Max Stone.
Steve: Yeah, and I will tell your mom about the Devil's music.
Tom: Well... I'll tell everyone you tried to touch me.
Steve: Get out!
Tom: [from outside] Someone, help! It's a peedo!
Steve: "Pedo," retard.

Beat Beneath My Feet is awesome!
2 November 2016 | by elizabethalexander-08284See all my reviews

The Beat Beneath My Feet is a charming musical dramaedy about a teenage social outcast named Tom (Nicholas Galitzine) who discovers his rowdy neighbor (Luke Perry) is actually a former rock & roll legend who fakes his own death to escape financial debt. I loved this coming-of-age film because it thoughtfully shows the struggles of growing up and finding yourself. It is definitely relatable to young adults and teens who have ever struggled with fitting in and I especially loved how Tom's passion of music helped him reach his full-potential. It also included an amazingly up- beat soundtrack that was an exceptional addition to the film. This inspirational indie flick is definitely worth the watch if you haven't already had the chance to see it.
