I did really like the fact that all the main characters had a soft side so I didn't know who to root for, but also I got pretty lost 2/3 of the way in. So much so that at that point, I really didn't understand where the movie was going. BUT the way they highlight both the light/dark and complexity of every situation is an incredibly redeeming quality.
Wow. My family got mad at me after this film because I told them I needed space to emotionally process what I just watched. The music, the acting, the dancing... everything felt right. And it was all tied up in a message about love, loss, and following your dreams. I had high hopes for this film, but they were met in every way.
