Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School (2005)

Life is infused in the quiet, shy, broken, and outsider at Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing and Charm School.

A tragic event guides widow Frank to the evening classes where he is drawn immediately into dancing and courting the women there. The story goes back and forth between the present, the accident scene that leads Frank to the school, and childhood memories of the school. Everyone involved is blessed by its involvement with Hotchkiss's very formal classes.

The acting in this film is superb and the sentiment is palpable. The characters may be a tad bit eccentric, but it makes the film that much more magical.
