The Dance

“As depressing Depression films go, Sydney Pollack’s 1969 opus takes the stale biscuit. Heart attacks, broken dreams, and breakdowns on the dance floor as 1930s dance-marathon participants down on their luck compete for prize money. Here, our cast gives their thespian all, in everything from D&G to Brioni.” (Vanity Fair, Ain’t We Got Style, July 2009)
