High Strung Movie Review


In a city where only the best succeed, two radically talented people from opposite sides of the tracks need to find harmony to achieve their dreams.

RUBY ADAMS is a dancer from the Midwest on scholarship, living her first day in New York City. JOHNNIE BLACKWELL is a British musician, playing for money in the subway tunnels. Ruby’s world is classical and disciplined; Johnnie’s is improvisational and street smart. When a hip-hop battle gone wrong throws these two artists together, they immediately clash but can’t deny it when sparks begin to fly. Their lives quickly get entangled in the pitfalls that come with competing in New York City. With the help of a dynamic dance crew called The SwitchSteps, Ruby and Johnnie must find a way to save Ruby’s scholarship and keep Johnnie from being deported.

In an action-packed extravaganza combining cutting edge hip-hop with contemporary and classical dance, the two must navigate their opposing worlds and prepare for a competition where winning or losing will change their lives forever.

This is the first movie that I have watched in a really long time that I just want to keep watching it over and over again.  Why?  Because of the amazing talent that is in this film, that is not in the average movie.  This isn’t just a cheesy love story between a ballerina and violinist.  This movie is just one long performance, scene after scene, of so much talent that it just draws you right in!
The best way I can describe this movie is to take your favorite Broadway show, mix it with an episode of Glee, and episode of Dancing with the Stars, top it off with a live orchestra – all on steroids.  I just loved watching the dancers and being so amazed at how they train and move their bodies.  The musicians, especially the violinists, just blow you away.
I wish there were more popular movies like this being made now, instead of the  lame acting mixed in with a lot of computer graphics that we see so much of.
I also love that this movie is rated PG so that my daughter can watch the talent without me worrying about foul language or raunchy sex scenes.
 This is a rare gem in the movie world that highlights true skill and talent and totally think you should watch it.  🙂
