How She Move

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Buoyant musical film chronicling the struggles of a young Caribbean immigrant (Rutina Wesley) who, in the wake of her sister's death and the financial ruin of her parents (Conrad Coates and Melanie Nicholls-King), seeks comfort in "stepping," a traditional style of African-American dance and, despite the opposition of a former friend (Tre Armstrong), joins an all-male crew led by a charismatic step veteran (Dwain Murphy) to compete for prize money she hopes to use for tuition. While sequences of tightly choreographed stomping provide the entertainment high points of director Ian Iqbal Rashid's movie, the drama is also effective and the emphasis on education welcome. The film is possibly acceptable for older teens. Two uses of the f-word (one only mouthed), much crude and crass language, one use of profanity, one obscene gesture, drug references and suggestive dancing. 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.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
