Preview: Musical Chairs (2012)


A passionate dancer struggling to find his purpose in the medium, realizes that even wheelchair bound men and women deserve to rejoice in the happiness of ballroom dancing.

  • Poster: C+


Attempting to build on the abstract may not convince the audience to stop by to watch the film unless they've seen the trailer already. Plus the bloody wash of the poster is more distracting than supportive.

  • Trailer: B-


Although the music in the trailer isn't very compelling, the idea and execution at least looks entertaining, if not passionate.

Oscar Prospects:

It's hard to say until we hear the critical reaction. It's the kind of unusual, heart-touching story that the Academy might fawn over if flogged by the right distributor.
