A Time to Dance follows the bittersweet story of longtime couple John and Abby, whose separation is postponed when they find out their daughter is getting married. Determined not to spoil their daughter's big moment, they secretly put their plans on hold only to have the wedding planning process draw them back together.
This story was taken from the pages of Karen Kingsbury's book, which I have yet to read, and the premise piqued my interest, having just celebrated 25 years of marriage.
Not only did the story line not disappoint, the writing, acting and directing all came together beautifully. Having seen so many couples around us not make it, and knowing first hand that marriage takes work, this felt like a real peek into a nice family's story that was quickly unraveling, even though from the outside, everything seemed perfect. The film opens showing the main couple when they were high school sweethearts, then fast-forwards 25 yrs later. As they make plans to draw up papers and begin to dissolve their union, they are surprised by their daughter's engagement. They decide to hold off telling anyone of their plans until after the wedding. A heart-felt lesson of the importance of not throwing away promises.
