Trivia

In addition to having to learn the violin, Galitzine had to learn how to Tango. And, he had to lead a professional dancer in the Latin dance. About this he said: "We had like about a week or something before that of learning all the moves. And it's very difficult because in a Tango, the man's supposed to lead, and, you know, if you're not a dancer and they kinda tell you to lead this very accomplished dancer, it's kind of scary," Galitzine admitted, adding that Keenan "is an exquisite dancer in kind of pretty much all forms," including, "a pretty mean robot."

Ruby: You don't have to do that; I was being pushy, when I don't even know you.
Johnnie: [Pulls her close] Do you want to?

Glad I hung in there
18 August 2020 | by xpamtnSee all my reviews

At first I wasn't sure about this movie. The story took a while to catch on but after that I really enjoyed the music and the dancing. The last scene is worth a second viewing just to catch all that is going on.

Overall, great music, great dancing, acting is OK. If you want a feel good movie- this is it.
