Shall We Dance


1h 46m 2004

Brief Synopsis

Chicago lawyer John Clark knows his life is almost perfect. He loves his beautiful wife, he's built a successful career and raised two wonderful kids. And yet, the workday is always the same routine, the commute is a grind and the family's usually too busy to spend time together. Sometimes John wonders if this is all there is, until one evening on his way home from work he gets off his train and does the unthinkable. Without tellling a soul, he secretly begins taking dance lessons. Suddenly, John is thrust into a whole new world--of motion, music, camaraderie and passion. As this very serious man becomes literally light on his feet, his whole life, and marriage, transforms.
