    ★★★★

    Having grown up kind of upper middle class I guess, I understood some of it. But I'll have to admit, if I've grown up in American suburbs - it would've probably been more impactful.
    But still I liked it, the cinematography, the actors were so perfectly over the top, and most of all - the courage or might I say ballsy decisions to make art that matters and is different enough to catch your thinking and take it somewhere new.

    One of the most touching and sincere films I've seen. Might have something to do with my current state of mind and fear for the future.
    But I don't really care - I love it and and it makes me want to do something half as impactful as this was to me some day. Also it took away the rush of life for a second - to choose what I want to do, despite how long it might take me.

    *wow film really is my therapy huh

    ★★½

    The humor was at times great, but most of the times falling short. The ending didn't quite work for me either - a bit too cheesy and on the nose. From the start Tom felt a bit too good to be true and gave the ending away.
    I will have to admit though, a few tears were shed but that has to do more with my emotioal stability and life at the moment than actually great storytelling.

    And let's admit…

    it's refreshing to see an actual good DANCEfilm and not a silly romantic adventure set in streetdance culture
