Take the Lead
Source: Catholic News Service
Uplifting movie inspired by real-life dance instructor Pierre Dulaine (a very believable Antonio Banderas), who gets permission from the principal of an inner-city high school (Alfre Woodard) to teach ballroom dancing to troubled kids, eventually leading them to participate in a major ballroom competition. Music video director Liz Friedlander makes an assured feature film debut despite the formulaic plot, and has elicited good performances, while imparting admirable messages about trust, dignity and respect. Some crude language and expressions, implied prostitution, an amorous advance to a minor, a vulgar gesture, violent car vandalism and gunplay preclude viewing by younger adolescents. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
