100 Word Review – Strictly Ballroom (1992)

Directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby) shows off his style and sense of humour in this wonderful, quirky Australian comedy.

Scott Hastings (Paul Mercurio) is tipped to win the Pan Pacific Ballroom Dancing Championship, until dancing non-regulation steps loses him his dancing partner. With an overbearing mother living through his successes, will he risk dancing his own steps? And if so, will he find someone to dance with him?

This film is dramatic and hilarious. Part-mockumentary, part romantic comedy, full of feather boas, extraordinary hair styles and some toe-tapping tunes. It is guaranteed to make you smile!
