This review is from: Fame  [DVD] (DVD)
The first review of this film shows that the viewer was a little misguided. This is a truly classic film but is not much like the TV series we all know and love. It is a much darker movie about ambition, poverty and the knock-backs of life. Much like what being a struggling dancer/actor/musician probably is (or was)
It's an amazing movie and the knocks that Leroy endures makes it worthwhile. Otherwise it'd all be about the dancing but with no substance.
