As I was browsing through Netflix, I found one of my favorite movies, “Strictly Ballroom.” The main character, Scott Hastings, is a ballroom dancer who wants to dance his own way. He is also running out of time to find a suitable dance partner in time for the championship dance competition. Scott finds an unlikely partner in Fran, an awkward beginning dancer.
There are several quirky characters that make the movie especially funny. I enjoy the flashbacks involving Scott’s parents, who were also ballroom dancers.
So thank you Netflix for giving me something to watch until “Orange is the New Black” starts their new season.
