Gratuitous Independent Film Posting

Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School This is a quirky little movie, with a great cast. I loved it. Grief, loss, redemption, love.... A good story.

Some of the music is wonderful. This is one song from the movie (though the video isn't from the movie) Enjoy. [Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole and his rendition of Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World]

My favorites from the cast....

Robert Carlyle (from The Full Monty)

Mary Steenburgen (who you all know from Back to the Future III, but she won an Academy Award for Melvin and Howard)

John Goodman (who everyone knows from "Roseanne", but I will always remember from O Brother, Where Art Thou?)

Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings)

Adam Arkin (who I remember most from "Chicago Hope")

Ernie Hudson (who has been in many films, but I remember for The Substitute and Ghost Busters)

With cameo appearances by

Danny DeVito (what do I need to say? "Taxi", Ruthless People, Romancing the Stone, but I loved him in Renaissance Man)

Camryn Manheim (who was in "The Practice")
