Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School

Yes, this is a very long movie title, and I apologize that I can't seem to find the official web site, so I linked to the IMDB page.

This movie was the best movie that I watched at the Waterfront Film Festival. In fact, it was the last movie that I watched, because I felt like I wanted to leave the festival "on top".

The script was good enough to attract many big name actors, many of them with very small roles. The actors are Robert Carlyle, Marisa Tomei, John Goodman, Mary Steenburgen, Danny DeVito, Sean Astin, and Donnie Wahlberg. The director was at the film festival and told us that many of these actors worked for free, because of the script. There is actually a short by the same name, same director, that was incorporated into the new feature as a historic flashback. One of the child actors in the flashback also had a role as an adult in the bigger movie. He was also at the film festival.

I'm sure that this movie will be playing on the big screen sometime this fall, so please look for it. It was a really great film!
