Small town boy comes to big city. Discovers his talents, discovers himself. Has difficult phone calls back home. It’s a familiar but sturdy set-up for a film. Yet rather than being a boxer, the young man is a dancer.
The film is “Five Dances” by Alan Brown, whose previous efforts include “Private Romeo,” a gay retelling of “Romeo & Juliet.” The star is Ryan Steele and choreography is by Jonah Bokaer. Follow the website for information on the forthcoming world premiere and subsequent screenings.
