Marilyn Hotchkiss’ Ballroom Dancing & Charm School

Marilyn_hotchkiss_ballroom_dancing_and_charm_school_ver2 Yet another ballroom dancing movie presents dance as a universal balm that heals life’s problems in this mildly inspired dramatic comedy. A lonely widowed Frank Keane (Robert Carlyle) witnesses a car wreck and takes instruction from accident victim Steve Mills (John Goodman) to meet the dying man’s childhood love at Marilyn Hotchkiss’ Ballroom Dancing and Charm School, 40 years after the date was made. Frank discovers more than he bargained for in the alien environment of ballroom dance where a young woman named Meredith (Marisa Tomei) possesses a romantic glow.

Rated PG-13. 103 mins. (C) (Two Stars)
