Thu 31 Mar 2011 In: Movies View at Wayback View at NDHA

Out Takes is just weeks away and the second film in the line-up has been unveiled. Dancesporters rejoice - Leading Ladies is a film for women who love women ... and ballroom dancing: About Leading Ladies: The Camparis are a family of women in which everyone knows her place. Sheri is the larger-than-life, overbearing stage mom. Once a young and beautiful ballroom champion, Sheri now lives vicariously through her youngest daughter Tasi, the darling of the local amateur ballroom circuit. Sheri's oldest daughter, Toni, is Tasi's practice partner, the wallflower who must quietly support them all. The only consistent man in the life of the Campari women is Cedric, Tasi's dance partner and Toni's best friend. Find out what happens to each as they reexamine their roles in modern life and on the dance floor and learn to "Let Love Lead." The reviewers say: “An impressive first feature from Daniel and Erika Randall Beahm.” -VARIETY “It may seem quite an impossibility, but the film Leading Ladies is, simply put, a quietly revolutionary dance musical.” -FEMINIST REVIEW “Expertly shot, energetically choreographed numbers boast a lightness of touch miles away from the freneticism of Baz Luhrmann, while the tyro thesps' unaffected performances add a note of sweetness to pic's atmosphere of guileless simplicity.” -VARIETY Check out the trailer below.
