Mavis (Liza Minnelli) was a chorus line dancer on Broadway. Just as she was on the verge of getting more prominent roles, she fell in love. Her full-of-himself boyfriend moved them to Buffalo, far from the theater scene. As a musician, he plays with a band in the local clubs, often with the very talented Mavis singing at his elbow. But, they are just two bit players, mostly because of his total lack of ambition. On the side, Mavis runs a dance studio for ordinary folks. In her classes, among others, are a lovely nurse, a librarian, a lady with an overbearing husband, a lady with an unemployed son, a bossy middle aged housewife (Julie Walters) and a lone, divorced, very shy male. The studio pianist is a strong-willed senior (Shelley Winters). One day, a woman who operates a more prominent dance school in Buffalo invites Mavis and her class to perform a number in a charity dance recital.

david s (jp) wrote: A beautiful homage to the music (of John Coltrane). And a good film in its own right. Great performances (acting and playing and singing) and a great script, this film gets right to the heart of the music-maker's soul. The high and the rock-bottom low, the exploitation, the thrill and the joy. Great girls too.
Brian S (it) wrote: a very intelligently written dramatic comedy. Cary Grant brings all his usual charm into a role that could be compared to a subtler, suaver Patch Adams. daring but not all-together cohesive scriptwriting, solid acting, and an endearing ending. a little off-the-mark and under-the-radar, but a pretty decent film nonetheless.

This one on the brokers I guess, to be honest I don't know their roles exactly, they sell insurance bundles or whatever. That my main issue with these movies, I don't know enough about what these people do or what their selling and how it can effect so much the economy. The movie overall is well done, it's scripted and shot well, and they do explain the situation well, expecting the audience may not know in full what is happening. I am one of those people. I do wish I understood it all better, as then this would be a very good movie. It's still interesting and actually gets your attention even though it's all talk and numbers and stuff, it's still and interesting watch, and Kevin Spacey's character and his acting make it all the more better. When combined with other movies The Big Short and 99 Homes it gives a good in film overview of the 2008 stock market drop. Overall it's good, not much feels like it's happening, but it's still interesting stuff even if you don't understand it, with some good acting, actors and script to back it all up.
