DIRTY DANCING

DIRTY DANCING

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
One of the defining US movies of the 1980s arrives for the first time on Curzon Home Cinema. Set in the 1950s, it’s the story of a middle class family who take a vacation at a summer camp near a picturesque lake. ‘Baby’ is nearing adulthood but is still treated like a child by her parents and elder sister. However, a chance encounter with one of the dance teachers at the camp leads her into a world where music, dance and sex come together, and a group of youths are desperate to have the time of their lives. Emile Ardolino’s musical drama sidesteps any postmodern or ironic take on an earlier era, instead offering up a portrait of a seemingly more naïve age and a moment of innocence lost. As dance instructor Johnny Castle, Swayze swaggers in a way that guaranteed his star status, while Jennifer Grey is perfect as the young ingénue who flourishes in a world less conservative than her own. As guilty pleasures go, this is one of the best. ★★★★ "Endlessly quotable, strangely fascinating and immensely charming" - Empire
