Work It, a movie directed by Laura Terruso, features a cast well-known to the Netflix platform, with Sabrina Carpenter (Tall Girl) in the lead role. She will be joined by Jordan Fisher (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), Michelle Buteau (Isn’t it Romantic), Keiynan Lonsdale (The Flash) and Liza Koshy (Escape the Night) in the cast.
The film follows the adventures of Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter) a young student who has been trying to get into Duke University, the university of her dreams, since she was very young. Unfortunately, her admissions interview does not go as planned. Her admission to university will depend on a dance competition, but Quinn has absolutely no idea how to dance. Determined not to give up on her dream, she decides to start her own dance group with the support and participation of her best friend, Jasmine Hale (Liza Koshy). After finding new members for her troupe, the student is desperate to recruit Jake Taylor (Jordan Fisher) the best choreographer, to win the famous competition.
This movie makes for good entertainment that is both uplifting and light-hearted. Throughout its 1 hour and 33 minutes, it takes us into a world of dance, music, love and friendship that will make us smile. Dance is an essential part of the movie’s plot and allows us to discover several choreographies (in group or in duet) that are beautifully executed and that would even make us want to dance alongside the characters. Besides, the music that has been chosen is ideal for the movie and allows us to appreciate even more such moments during the film.
The main character, Quinn Ackerman has a very interesting story since she is evolving throughout the whole movie. At first, she is a serious, perfectionist, hard-working young girl, wanting at all costs to be the perfect girl to meet her mother’s and her school’s expectations. But once she discovers dance, a revelation occurs, she learns as she goes along to let go, to have fun and to be happy in life.
Love is also present, always punctuated by two or three dance steps, but it’s better if you discover this love story for yourself by watching the movie on Netflix.
