Shall we dance? - Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, Susan Sarandon, Peter Chelsom

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Step out of the ordinary.

Richard Gere stars as John Clark, a man with a wonderful job, charming wife (Susan Sarandon) and loving family, who still feels that something is missing as he makes his way through the city each day.

Every evening on his commute home, John sees a beautiful woman, Paulina (Jennifer Lopez), staring with a lost expression through the window of a dance studio. Haunted by her gaze, John impulsively jumps off the train one night, and signs up for dance lessons hoping to meet her. While John proves just as clumsy as his equally clueless classmates on the dance-floor, he nonetheless falls in love with dancing. Struggling to keep his new obsession from family and co-workers, John feverishly trains for Chicago's biggest dance competition.

His friendship with Paulina blossoms, as his enthusiasm rekindles her own lost passion for dance. With his wife becoming suspicious, and his secret about to be revealed, John will have to do some fancy footwork to keep his dream going and realise what it is he really yearns for.
