Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Let's Dance follows several young French hip-hop and ballet dancers as they practice together and inspire each other, readying for auditions and competitions against all odds. Such themes are commonly on display in many movies about football, debating, gymnastics, and dance, but they often target kids and young teens. With language and a certain sexual frankness (although there's no nudity or on-screen sex), this may be more appropriate for an older teen audience. Kissing. Characters smoke and drink. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "ass," and "balls." In French with English subtitles. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
This is a lively take on a familiar theme, but the high quality of the writing, direction, and performances, added to a general artistic enlightenment, make this a cut above the usual. Both Rayane Bensetti as Joseph and Alexia Girodana as Chloe provide attractive leads. Guillaume de Tonquebec, as the older and wiser Remi, gives Let's Dance a grounding in responsible yet soaring artistic dedication. The only disappointment is that while the drama focuses on dancers finding ways to stand out from the generic crowd of competitors and discovering dance inspiration in the everyday movement all around, the resulting choreography remains pretty unexciting, even as the performers do their best to put it across.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
