Strictly BallroomBaz Luhrmann + Catherine Martin Films
Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin’s stylish first feature Strictly Ballroom dazzles audiences with the larger-than-life world of competitive ballroom dancing.
The film follows the slow-burn dance partnership of odd couple Scott and Fran (Paul Mercurio, Tara Morice) as they fight the traditionalist Dance Federation and the domineering influence of Scott’s mother. The maverick duo dance to the beat of their own drum, letting it propel them to the much-coveted national championships. The first in Luhrmann’s quintessential Red Curtain film trilogy, this icon of Australian cinema will leave you tapping along in your seat!
