Shall We Dance
Source: Catholic News Service
Delightful remake of 1996 Japanese film, now set in Chicago, about a lawyer (Richard Gere) in a rut with his loving but preoccupied wife (Susan Sarandon) and two teenage kids, whose life is transformed when he secretly enrolls in a ballroom dancing school, after he observes a beautiful and sad woman (Jennifer Lopez) looking out of the school's window. Director Peter Chelsom directs Gere in one of his best roles, Sarandon is appealing as the wife wondering at her husband's late nights, and Lopez has an ideal part as the emotionally damaged dance instructor with whom the husband bonds, with the dancing scenes a special treat. Wonderful feeling of uplift in terms of following one's dreams, and strong affirmation of family. A few instances of rough and crass language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
