Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by a true story, Antonio Banderas stars as internationally acclaimed ballroom dancer Pierre Dulane in the energetic and moving film Take The Lead. When Dulane volunteers to teach dance in the New York public school system, his background first clashes with his students' tastes...but together they create a completely new style of dance.
"Antonio Banderas is reason enough to see the movie." Roger Ebert
"Take the Lead is like that it may seem hokey, but it uses the tried and true to get a smile out of you every time." New York Daily News
"The filmmakers who dreamed up Take the Lead probably got a bonus for coming up with such a marketable concept. Mix a little Dangerous Minds with a bit of Save the Last Dance and, voila, a flick with across-the-board appeal." Arizona Republic
