(:)(:)(:)(:) for Mad Hot Ballroom

This adorable documentary about a mandatory ballroom dancing competition for New York City 4th and 5th graders is impossibly moving. It's a lot about dancing, but it's also about coming of age, about children's attitudes towards life, love and sex and about adults' attitudes toward competition, teaching and children.

I almost can't think of anything more to say except that anyone who likes dancing, kids, the possibility of change or good good movies should see this one.
