The Dance (2007)

The script in this film is better and the characters more complicated than in most LDS films, but I was still distracted by signs of mediocrity. Like the fake disco music at the dance, which seemed to be attended by about twenty people. Of course, I've never been to a young adult dance in Boston; maybe twenty people is a good turnout, but I'm guessing not.

However, it is based on a play (by Carol Lynn Pearson), which would also be sparsely populated.

Also, the title could use a little work. I did like the characters, who were more varied and had more depth than usual.
