This is a tough one to review! On the one hand, this is definitely an oversimplification of Nazism in late 1930s Germany and an overemphasis on teenage resistance to the movement, and yet… the dancing is just FABULOUS. I don’t think I’ve seen a better dance movie! Plus the costumes are quite well done, especially the late ’30s suits on the male characters. If you can accept that they’re pitching to a young audience and ignore some heavy handedness, you’ll quite enjoy it for the dancing alone. Plus Christian Bale is too cute.
