Comfort Films Discussion #3: Strictly Ballroom

Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Thursday mornings in May. You’ve already seen these films, it’s time to discuss them!

May 21 @ 11:00am – Strictly Ballroom, Australia 1992

Directed by Baz Luhrmann

Scott Hastings (Paul Mercurio) struggles to establish his personal style of dance on his way to win the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Dancing Championship, but his innovative and flashy steps are not considered “strictly ballroom”. He further alienates the dance community when he pairs with Fran (Tara Morice), a plain local girl considered a “beginner dancer”. Together, the team gives it their all and makes dreams of the National Championship title come true. Rated PG, 1 hour, 34 minutes. Film is rated PG, 1 hour 34 minutes; please watch it before attending. 

All four films are available on Netflix. Watch the film on your own, and then Zoom in for a conversation on the dates listed above. Professor Bob Kagan, who teaches Communication at Central Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford, will lead the discussions via Zoom.
