Northern Woe

16 years ago at Feb 7 11:20

FLASHDANCE - Uma jovem (Jennifer Beals) de garra e talento não mede esforços para realizar o sonho de se tornar uma bailarina. Para tanto, durante o dia ela trabalha como operária e à noite solta seu corpo no ritmo alucinante das discotecas.

"A steel mill welder by day, a sexy dancer by night, Alex (short for Alexandra) is on a mission to make her dreams come true. With a determination that's fierce, a boyfriend who's her boss , and a pit bull that likes to watch, she's out to prove that when it comes to living on a wire between will and what will be, she's a maniac, maniac. On the dance floor. Movies about moving your feet was a craze that was really hitting its stride in the 80's. Flashdance is one of those dance flicks. And yea"
