Accurate Portrayal
7 October 2018 | by eileentorresSee all my reviews

SHINE gives an accurate and authentic portrayal of the close-knit Latino and salsa community. We are greeted with rousing music that prepares the viewer for what is yet to come. The music pays tribute to the classics while introducing new titles. The dancing represents the evolution of a traditional art that now incorporates the acquired skills of spins, footwork (shines), and musicality-defined by punctuating the orchestration with corresponding accents in body and footwork. Most of the dancers are instantly recognizable to the global salsa community.

The movie spotlights an urban phenomenon that is responsible for much heartbreak. Gentrification is an American problem. SHINE reminds the viewer that those that have contributed tremendously to the cultural fabric of the collective American community are largely disregarded and considered dispensable. SHINE like any other movie is not for everyone. However music lovers, those that appreciate highly- skilled dancing, and Latinos everywhere must see this movie. Keep seated for the credits and revel in the number of Spanish surnames that appear. That is a rare occurrence but the gears have shifted. We will continue to SHINE.
