5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody deserves to see this, 5 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Strictly Ballroom [Collector's Edition] [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
I saw this film at a young age. I'm 18 now and it really had a lasing effect on me. Baz Luhrman tells the story of scot hastings, a ballroom champion who is sick of dancing the same steps. His family and friends are annoyed by this and his urge to do his own steps which would stop him from winning the pan pacifics. He rebels and looses his dance partner. In the time to find a new one he meets Fran, a shy self consious girl who is the ridicule of the dance class. She encourages him to dance with her, the two begin to form a friendship which soon turns to romance. The once shy and self consious fran grows as a person and we see a different side to her. I also appreciate how her apprarance never changes even though she does. She does'nt suddenly take off her glasses and let her hair down and she sudenly looks like Angelina Joile. She stays the same which I loved. There's too much of that kind of thing in most teen films which I find patronising and demeaning. Anyway, it's a great film with realistic people. It's a film that every young girl deserves to see. Fran is a brilliant character.
