Dare you to watch this and not smile
★★★★★ review by Alannah Rose on Letterboxd
I wasn't even planning to see this movie when I read about it in the montly schedule at my favorite local theater, but then I saw the trailer and knew I had to go. I found it really touching and I cried several times (no surprise), but it was also so human, inspiring and uplifting. There was a talk afterward with a couple who run local swing dancing classes and they were fantastic too (one of them was shown several times in the movie). Really great look into a subculture that is unfortunately overlooked for the cultural significance it holds.

Wildly charming and really nailed the energy of Lindy hop. Awesome dancing, and super-fun.
