Save the Last Dance

We watched Save the Last Dance off cable. I thought it was surprisingly good. It was pleasant to see an inter-racial movie that addressed, but was not overly antagonistic about race issues.

The story is of a girl who moves to a predominately minority community (how's that for an oxymoron) to live with her father, after her mother is killed in a car accident. She had been an aspiring ballerina before the accident, but gives it up because her mother was on her way to her try out when she was killed.

While not the deepest movie of all time, the acting was good and the setting and interactions of the characters was less formulaic than the average teen movie.

On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 70.
