Save the Last Dance (2001)

Description
Live your dream, it’s not as hard as it may seem, you gotta work to get the cream! This week’s movie is a somber and heartwarming tale of Sara Johnson's (Julia Stiles) ambitions to become a ballerina while living on the “bad” side of Chicago with her deadbeat dad after losing her mother in a tragic car accident. It is the origin of the greatest comeback aka “Steps ain’t no square dance” / “That’s okay, I’ll dance circles...probably around you”...even if Sara Johnson definitely does NOT dance in circles around ANYONE that night. It feels like we say this every time, but this SOUNDTRACK THO. “Murder She Wrote,” K-Ci & JoJo, Method Man and Redman...not to mention the somber violin score that complements the extremely Real drama that unfolds. Shoutout to Kerry Washington’s free lesson on the Black community and Sean Patrick Thomas dropping some knowledge on the meaning of In Cold Blood. We may not LOVE this movie but we did find a way to discuss it at LENGTH due to a handful of entertaining tangents, so tune in! Starring Julia Child-I mean, Julia Stiles, Sean Patrick Thomas, Kerry Washington, and Bianca Lawson.
