Starring Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas
”Save the Last Dance” is a dance movie you need to see
A dance vehicle with substance and style — a rare coup in a genre that can forsake character development for choreography. Weighty issues of class and race pepper Dance‘s plot, which revolves around a Vermont ballerina (Julia Stiles) forced to live with her father in a Chicago ghetto after her mother’s sudden death. The central love story holds the interest of hopeless teen romantics, while the best-selling soundtrack provides the backbeat.
