I watched this movie called “Faith, Hope & Love” the other night. Definitely a B movie. But what a B movie it was! I loved it. The dancing was kinda amazing and the story sweet and loving. It’s about a widower who enters a dance contest at the urging of his youngest daughter. Of course, he falls in love with the beautiful teacher along the way. There’s some spiritual context and a few surprise older actors that add a hint of mischief as well.
The story never loses sight of what human contact is all about, especially with the dance sequences that enthrall and delight, well at least to me. I couldn’t help the misty teary eyes that occasionally came out during some of the more romantic scenes in the movie.
One line in the movie held my attention. “Perfectly Imperfect”
Yep. What a great thought! And of course the movie ends on a up note. Which is how I like my stories. Yes, I’m a sap and like happy endings. It seems Hollywood has forgotten how to do that. And when a simple one comes along that most people wouldn’t give the time of day to watch, a movie that’s just engaging enough…to keep me from pressing the back button on my Roku, well, that makes me happy!
For those of you who want to check it out, I think it was on netflix.
Enjoy the cool crisp night air, I’ve got some texts to catch up on…
